Beschreibung

This sinister classic by Charles Robert Maturin, an eccentric Anglican priest from Ireland, has captured the
imaginations of readers since its publication in 1820 and provided inspiration for many other Gothic masterpieces, including Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray and Sarah Perry's Melmoth.

When a young Dublin student goes to say farewell to his dying uncle, he is mystified to find a locked room containing a portrait of a ravaged-looking man, which his uncle is too frightened to look at. John Melmoth has chanced upon a family secret which only gives rise to more questions.

As he ventures further into the mystery, an intricate and blood-chilling story begins to unfold. For the past
one hundred and fifty years, Melmoth the Wanderer has been searching desperately for an escape from the infernal bargain he once made. The trail of his destruction reaches from Inquisition-era Spain to a remote island in the Indian Ocean, and finally to County Wicklow, where John is still piecing the story together ...

'An enormous stride in the evolution of the horror tale'
H. P. Lovecraft

'The crowning achievement of the Gothic romance'
Devendra P. Varma

Charles Robert Maturin (1782-1824) was an Irish playwright and novelist, born in Dublin. A contradictory figure, Maturin was both a friend of Lord Byron and a Protestant cleric. His play Bertram so scandalised London that he was punished by the Church. He was also the great-uncle of Oscar Wilde, who renamed himself Melmoth while in exile as a tribute to his forebear. Melmoth the Wanderer is Maturin's best-known novel.
