Monk

Matthew Lewis

Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd

Format: Paperback

This is the “Penguin English Library Edition” of “The Monk” by Matthew Lewis. 'He now saw himself stained with the most loathed and monstrous sins, the object of universal execration ...doomed to perish in tortures the most severe'. Shocking, erotic and violent, “The Monk” is the story of Ambrosio, torn between his spiritual vows and the temptations of physical pleasure. His internal battle leads to sexual obsession, rape and murder, yet this book also contains knowing parody of its own excesses as well as social comedy. Written by Matthew Lewis when he was only nineteen, it was a ground-breaking novel in the Gothic Horror genre and spawned hundreds of imitators, drawn in by its mixture of bloodshed, sex and scandal. “The Penguin English Library” contains 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
