This edition is including an author [Matthew Gregory Lewis] biography from Wikipedia.The Monk is for all fan of the Gothic mode, particularly Radcliffe’s Mysteries of Udolpho, young Matthew Gregory Lewis set out to compose his own volume of terror that would match hers. To that end he may have surpassed her. For where Radcliffe kept subtle or held back, The Monk plunges headlong into carnal perturbations and supernatural forces, invoking the wrath of the moral majority of its day and earning the book— through the ensuing controversy— both tremendous popularity and notoriety. The Monk is hardly as lurid as its detractors have claimed, nor is it as ultimately fascinating and wise as Radcliffe’s Udolpho, yet it remains a thrilling read, passionate and dark, and at times alternating between brutally chilling and hilariously comical.
