M.G. Lewis was known in his lifetime as "Monk" Lewis thanks to the success of his 1796 Gothic novel The Monk, which helped define the genre and has since earned him comparisons to horror writers like Mary Shelley.

About the Author:

Matthew Gregory Lewis (9 July 1775 – 16 May 1818) was an English novelist and dramatist. He became famous overnight after the sensational success of his Gothic novel The Monk (1796). Thereafter he was known as “Monk” Lewis. From 1796 through 1802 Lewis served indifferently as a member of the House of Commons and continued to direct his energy into professional writing. From 1796 to 1812, 18 of his dramas were published or produced at London theaters. The first-produced and most successful was The Castle Spectre, a Gothic drama of ghosts, castles, and murders. Though none of these plays retains any interest today, they established Lewis as the leading popular playwright of his age. In 1801 Lewis published Tales of Wonder, a collection of 60 poetic ballads of the supernatural, including 9 by Lewis and 5 by Walter Scott. Lewis also wrote a number of songs, many for inclusion in his plays. The best of these he published as Twelve Ballads in 1808. The last volume was a small selection of his lyric poetry published in 1812.

Review:
