Originally published in 1796, The Monk's convoluted and scandalous plot has made it one of the most important Gothic novels of its time. Set in the sinister monastery of the Capuchins in Madrid, this is a violent tale of ambition, murder, and incest. The struggle between maintaining monastic vows and fulfilling personal ambitions tempts its main character into breaking his vows.

This book has 369 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1796.
