The monk which is an historical novel written by Matthew Lewis in , is noted as one of the most complicated among the classic gothic novels that were published in those times; between . Monk Synopsis: Mr. Monk Goes to the Firehouse by Lee Goldberg is the first book in the Monk series. Monk’s house is being fumigated and he’s looking for a place to stay. His assistant, Natatlie, and her daughter offer to let him stay over but their house isn’t quite as clean as Monk .

The Monk is an odd book. It features typical Gothic elements (or ones that it helped make typical): haunted castles, walled monasteries, labyrinthine caverns, secret dungeons, fetid sepulchers, trick statues, secret stairways, black magics, potent opiates, illicit loves, prophetic dreams, false identities, oracular gypsies, murderous bandits. When The Monk was first published in , it was received well by readers and reviewers causing a second edition to be printed the following year. But by the third year, there began a growing criticism of the book and of Lewis mostly on the basis of immorality. In fact, the book caused such a scandal that Lewis published another version.

  "The Monk" is an eccentric period melodrama with horror-flick overtones. Occasionally incoherent but never dull, the movie brims with weird imagery: figures in peaked hoods scurrying across windswept plains, nuns in opaque white veils, a bouquet rapidly wilting and then bursting into blue flames, a baby being pecked by crows. At one point, a group of men march past the camera. The more the monk can cultivate his relationship with God who lives within him, the more the monk loses himself and achieves "contemplation" - a renunciation of his heart, mind and will to the will of God. Of course, this kind of conversion this takes time and depends very much on the support, example and direction of others of like mind. Hence.
