Manfroné; or, The One-Handed Monk (1809) opens with one of the most unforgettable scenes in all of Gothic literature when a lascivious monk enters the lovely Rosalina's room in an attempt to rape her, but suffers the gruesome severing of his hand when he is caught in the act.

Yet other dangers await Rosalina: her father, the haughty Duca di Rodolpho is determined to marry her to the cruel Prince di Manfroné and imprisons her true love, Montalto, in the dungeons of his castle. And then there is the mysterious monk Grimaldi, who seems to be an ally of the Duca. What are his inscrutable plans, and is he trying to aid Rosalina or destroy her?

One of the most popular of Gothic novels, Manfroné went through numerous editions during the 19th century and was often erroneously attributed to Ann Radcliffe. This edition includes an essay by Dale Townshend exploring the authorship of the novel as well as explanatory notes.
