Annotation: A new edition of the notorious masterwork by the Gothic genre's most controversial author, this is the story of the respected and proud Abbott Ambrosio, who begins a diabolical romance with the seductive Matilda as his first step on the shocking path towards damnation. As the Inquisition festers, fellow convent members are exposed as similarly wayward. Corruption, lust, and violence are forged together in this scandalous centrepiece of the Eighteenth century sensational Gothic genre. A must have for Romantic Revolt collections.
