The Monk: A Romance tells of the spectacular downfall of a Spanish monk. Ambroio lusts for the woman Matilda, who is disguised as a monk, but once he has had her he becomes infatuated with the innocent Antonia. This novel was the first to villainize a priest, and has all the trappings of the Gothic novel, including ruined castles, rape, incest, demonic contracts and the Spanish Inquisition.

Lewis wrote the novel in ten weeks at the age of 19.

    DanLovesAlice: Both texts share the notion of the duplicity of man, and study how society and social roles can imprison our most primitive urges.

    The Devil in Love af 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.

Gothic fiction cannot get better than this ( )
  harishwriter | Oct 12, 2023 |
Filled with melodrama, ridiculousness, and ghosts. I loved it!

It has a great moral that is still useful today-Be pious because you are a good person, not because you think you're better than everyone else. ( )
  LynnMPK | Jul 1, 2023 |
The biggest flaw of this Gothic horror story for me was the somewhat dated style of writing (similar to that of Defoe). I think the creepiest part may have been the very end, in which the Spanish Inquisition is investigating Ambrosio (the monk) - partly because I suspect some of the tortures described may have been really used during this period of history!

I could quickly see why this book fell into disrepute during the early Victorian times, as it includes somewhat graphic (if flowery) descriptions of carnal sins and horrifying tortures. I did have to chuckle a few times at the very English repugnance of Catholics that showed in some of the descriptions! And I could see why authors such as Jane Austen parodied this type of melodrama. However, I was surprised by the fact that Ambrosio wasn't painted as entirely evil & his struggles with his conscience were sometimes quite moving. ( )

This Librivox edition was excellent & James White did a wonderful narration.

See my review of the Kindle edition for thoughts on the book itself. ( )
  leslie.98 | Jun 27, 2023 |
Perhaps no other novel written in the 18th century ever described the pangs of post-nut clarity with such acuity; the vehement disgust Ambrosio has for liberties all too recently indulged in is incredible. He is a man forever unsatisfied, but he is too proud and vain to ever take a step outside of the circuitry of desire once he gives himself over to it — his verbose pleadings and moralisings after committing various heinous acts only ever come off as smokescreens thrown up to conceal his own lack of self-reflection. Lewis probably deserves to be in conversations relating to Sade/Bataille, but I imagine that his work would only need to be briefly touched upon in the grand scheme of transgressive literature. ( )

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.
