SKU: 17296

Edited by Howard Anderson. Revised and with an Introduction and Notes by Nick Groom. OUP calls The Monk (1796) the first horror novel in English literature. This is the shocking tale of a respected monk whose desire for a young girl sends him into a terrible spiral of immorality and violence. The novel was condemned as obscene in its day, but it was tapping into fears of a population at war, and with the French Revolution going on across the channel. And it shows up in a Jane Austen novel! Oxford's World Classics. 2016. Paper. NEW. $9.00
