The monk : a romance by M. G Lewis( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Savaged by critics for its supposed profanity and obscenity, and bought in large numbers by readers eager to see whether it lived up to its lurid reputation, The Monk became a succès de scandale when it was published in 1796--not least because its author was a member of parliament and only twenty years old. It recounts the diabolical decline of Ambrosio, a Capuchin superior, who succumbs first to temptations offered by a young girl who has entered his monastery disguised as a boy, and continues his descent with increasingly depraved acts of sorcery, murder, incest and torture. Combining sensationalism with acute psychological insight, this masterpiece of Gothic fiction is a powerful exploration of how violent and erotic impulses can break through the barriers of social and moral restraint. This edition is based on the first edition of 1796, which appeared before Lewis's revisions to avoid charges of blasphemy. In his introduction, Christopher MacLachlan discusses the novel's place within the Gothic genre, and its themes of sexual desire and the abuse of power."--Publisher description

Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, romancier et nouvelliste angloirlandais : 18141873 by J Lozes( Book )

2 editions published between 1987 and 2003 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'œuvre de Le Fanu est née de la tragique rencontre politico-religieuse entre deux pays, l'Irlande et l'Angleterre. Elle est une vision d'abord historique, puis mythique de ce conflit. L'étude de cette confrontation aboutit très vite à une hésitation fatale, à l'impossibilité de trouver une solution. L'art de Le Fanu consiste à exprimer cette hésitation et cette impossibilité sur deux modes littéraires utilisés conjointement. Expression de l'enfermement, de l'incompréhensible prédestination, de l'inexorable fatalité, de la menace constante du mystère, traduction de la grande peur originelle qui se perpétue à travers l'histoire, le genre fantastique donne à Le Fanu le moyen idéal de révéler la face hideuse d'un monde où tout voyage est trompeusement initiatique, où tout désir de connaissance débouche sur l'angoisse, le cauchemar, la dualité et la réversibilité des êtres et des choses, la mort. Expression de la tentative de rationaliser l'existence humaine, de clarifier le dédale des situations, le genre policier apporte par ailleurs à Le Fanu la nécessaire caution de la raison qui lui permet précisément de démontrer la vanité de toute espérance profonde dans ce domaine
