The Monk shocked and titillated readers with its graphic portrayal of lust, sin, and violence when it was first published in 1796. A true classic of the Gothic novel, it has left an indelible mark on English literature and has influenced such eminent writers as Byron, Scott, Poe, Flaubert, Hawthorne, Emily Brontë, and many others over the past two centuries. Ambrosio is the abbot of the Capuchin monastery in Madrid. He is beloved by his flock, and his renowned piety has earned him the nickname The Man of Holiness. Yet beneath the veneer of this religious man lies a heart of hypocrisy; arrogant, licentious, and vengeful, he follows his sexual desires down the torturous path to ruin. Along the way, he encounters a naïve virgin who falls prey to his scheming, a baleful beauty fluent in witchcraft, the ghostly Bleeding Nun, an evil prioress, the Wandering Jew, and others.… (més)

The Monk de Matthew Lewis (1796)

  1. 50
    The Devil in Love de Jacques Cazotte (Jannes)
    Jannes: The Monk is generally considered to be heavily influenced by Le Diable amoureux, and the novels share several themes, most obviously the idea of the devil in the form of a seductive woman.
  2. 50
    L'estrany cas del Dr. Jekyll i Mr. Hyde de Robert Louis Stevenson (DanLovesAlice)
    DanLovesAlice: Both texts share the notion of the duplicity of man, and study how society and social roles can imprison our most primitive urges.
  3. 10
    The Italian de Ann Radcliffe (kara.shamy)

ah, sweet gothic blasphemy.

If you're going to read this, definitely look for a copy based on the first edition of 1796 -- seems Lewis later made revisions to avoid charges of aforementioned blasphemy.

Also, he was only 20 years old, and a goddamn member of parliament, when he wrote this. ( )

"The Monk" certainly deserves its description as a Gothic classic. Hard to imagine a book written in the 18th century could be described as a "page-turner", yet it is. Not high literature or a stylistic masterpiece but without a doubt an amazing tale. Moreover as many people observe, the book was written in ten weeks by 19 year old. Simply amazing.

The tale utilizes almost every conceivable plot twist and doesn't hesitate to borrow from earlier works of fiction. Despite its length the story doesn't drag. Still, the Gothic style and presentation may not appeal to every reader. But, if nothing else, "The Monk" deserves attention for its place in literary history. If the prospective reader accepts the genre and exercises a bit of patience, it is a very enjoyable and noteworthy read. ( )

It’s one of the original Gothic novels, published in 1796, full of English hand-wringing about the evils of Catholicism and the power of the Church in Spain, and the stereotypical corruption of the monastic system. It’s full of glorious nonsense; at one point, a character declares that she can only be saved from poisoning if the Monk of the title will have sex with her, which is a rather romantic view of the interaction between poisoning symptoms and libido. The book slips further and further from the real world into horror and at the end the Monk has a decisive interaction with Lucifer himself. Fun stuff, and you can see its roots in much later horror.

The gnarliest book I have ever read! ( )
  JosephVanBuren | May 17, 2022 |
Once in a while it's very pleasant to read a story where the ghosts, witches, dissembling demons, Wandering Jew, evil nuns, cross-dressers, murderous brigands, Inquisitional tortures, violated maidens, mad monks, mouldering corpses (or "Corses" to use the quaint vernacular), secret passages, dank dungeons, all-pervading air of carnality and Satan himself are not just implied, metaphorical, or artifacts of a disordered psyche, but actually real.

Here's Old Nick in all his pomp:

He appeared in all that ugliness which since his fall from heaven had been his portion: His blasted limbs still bore marks of the Almighty’s thunder: A swarthy darkness spread itself over his gigantic form: His hands and feet were armed with long Talons: Fury glared in his eyes, which might have struck the bravest heart with terror: Over his huge shoulders waved two enormous sable wings; and his hair was supplied by living snakes, which twined themselves round his brows with frightful hissings. In one hand He held a roll of parchment, and in the other an iron pen. Still the lightning flashed around him, and the Thunder with repeated bursts, seemed to announce the dissolution of Nature. ( )

Although some early editions give the title as "Ambrosio, or the Monk," both the first edition and the overwhelming majority of later editions give the give merely as "The Monk". See the facsimile of the first edition's title-page in the 1952 Grove Press reprint.
