  The Monk - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Monk is a Gothic novel by Matthew Gregory Lewis that first appeared in 1796.
He is undone by carnal lust for his pupil Matilda, and once satisfied by her, he is overcome with desire for the innocent Antonia, whom he later rapes and kills.
Ambrosio, the hypocrite foiled by his own lust, and his sexual misconduct inside the walls of convents and monasteries, is a vividly portrayed villain, as well as an embodiment of much of the traditional English mistrust of Roman Catholicism, with its intrusive confessional, its political and religious authoritarianism, and its cloistered lifestyles.

 §18. Matthew Gregory Lewis: "The Monk". XIII. The Growth of the Later Novel. Vol. 11. The Period of the French ...
Radcliffe’s; for he had been in Germany and there is no doubt that he had taken for his model not merely the poems of Bürger and the other early romantics but the drama and fiction of Schiller and of Heinse, in The Robbers (1781) and in Ardinghello (1785).
The consequence was that The Monk did not please people even so little squeamish as Byron, and has never, except in a quasi-surreptitious manner, been reprinted in its original form.
Radcliffe had set the example of inserting verse, sometimes not very bad verse, but she never shows the somewhat loose, but distinctly noteworthy, novel and even influential command of rapid rhythm which was another of Lewis’s oddly flawed, but by no means ordinary, gifts.

Matthew Gregory Lewis's The Monk, written in ten weeks when the author was nineteen and published in 1796 when he was twenty, is the most lurid of the Gothic novels and, at the same time, one of the most vividly written (a combination guaranteed to produce a best-seller).
The monks having attended their abbot to the door of his cell, he dismissed them with an air of conscious superiority, in which humility's semblance combated with the reality of pride.

Antonin Artaud’s simulacrum of The Monk is the only work of sustained fiction by the infamous literary terrorist.
In Artaud's The Monk, sexual obsession is irrepressibly crushed together with murder, cruelty and blasphemy.
Best known for his Theatre of Cruelty manifestoes, Surrealist film projects and corporeal poetry, Artaud created The Monk in France in 1931, to the acclaim of such figures as Jean Cocteau, at a time when Artaud's explicit purpose in his work was to cancel out all existing social and moral systems.
