      Matthew Gregory Lewis was an English novelist and dramatist, often referred to as Monk Lewis, because of the success of his classic Gothic novel, The Monk.Matthew Gregory Lewis was the firstborn child of Matthew and Frances Maria Sewell Lewis His father, Matthew Lewis was the son of William Lewis and Jane Gregory He was born in Jamaica in 1750 He attended Westminster School before proceeding to Christ Church, Oxford where he received his bachelor s degree in 1769 and his master s in 1772 That same year, he was appointed as the Chief Clerk in the War Office The following year, Lewis married Frances Maria Sewell, a young woman who was very popular at court She was the third daughter born to Sir Thomas Sewell and was one of eight children born in his first marriage Her family, like Lewis , had connections with Jamaica As a child, she spent her time in Ottershaw In December 1775, in addition to his post as the Chief Clerk in the War Office, Lewis became the Deputy Secretary at War With one exception, he was the first to hold both positions at that same time and earning both incomes Lewis owned considerable property in Jamaica, within four miles of Savanna la Mer, or Savanna la Mar, which was hit by a devastating earthquake and hurricane in 1779 His son would later inherit this property.In addition to Matthew Gregory Lewis, Matthew and Frances had three other children Maria, Barrington, and Sophia Elizabeth On 23 July 1781, when Matthew was six and his youngest sister was one and a half years old, Frances left her husband, taking the music master, Samuel Harrison, as her lover During their estrangement, Frances lived under a different name, Langley, in order to hide her location from her husband He still, however, knew her whereabouts On 3 July 1782, Frances gave birth to a child That same day, hearing of the birth, her estranged husband returned Afterwards, he began to arrange a legal separation from his wife After formally accusing his wife of adultery through the Consistory Court of the Bishop of London on 27 February 1783, he petitioned the House of Lords for permission to bring about a bill of divorce However, as these bills were rarely granted, it was rejected when brought to voting Consequently, Matthew and Frances remained married until his death in 1812 Frances, though withdrawing from society and temporarily moving to France, was always supported financially by her husband and then later, her son She later returned to London and then finally finished her days at Leatherhead, rejoining society and even becoming a lady in waiting to the Princess of Wales Frances and her son remained quite close, with her taking on the responsibility of helping him with his literary career She even became a published author, much to her son s dislike.Matthew Gregory Lewis began his education at a preparatory school under Reverend Dr John Fountain, Dean of York at Maryleborne Seminary, a friend of both the Lewis and Sewell families Here, Lewis learned Latin, Greek, French, writing, arithmetic, drawing, dancing, and fencing Throughout the school day, he and his classmates were only permitted to converse in French Like many of his classmates, Lewis used the Maryleborne Seminary as a stepping stone, proceeding from there to the Westminster School, like his father, at age eight Here, he acted in the Town Boys Play as Falconbridge in King John and then My Lord Duke in High Life Below Stairs Later, again like his father, he began studying at Christ Church, Oxford on 27 April 1790 at the age of fifteen He graduated with a bachelor s degree in 1794 He later earned a master s degree from the same school in 1797.


    1. Quite good The reading is made interesting by Lewis own notes throughout, and his finishing appeal to the reader makes me wish to have seen the play back when it was being performed There are quite a lot of predictable events and characters in the play the heroine cannot really be an orphan, of course she has noble blood but on the whole it was an entertaining read.

    2. I read this one right after I had read The Monk and I expected to have similar, very strong emotions However, this is a melodrama A very entertaining book, worth reading, but instead of reminding me of the author of The Monk, it reminded me of Oscar Wilde and The Importance of Being Earnest It was quite funny, witty funny, I mean I recommend it.

    3. This is tamer than The Monk I ve seen other people compare it to Oscar Wilde and I definitely got that feeling from it, though Lewis was writing almost exactly 100 years before Wilde More enjoyable than I thought it would be, and view spoiler in the end the fact that the women act on their own behalf puts this miles above some of the other Gothic stuff we re reading Sure, one of the women is a ghost, and she s acting out of some sort of need to protect her family, but still the fact that her dau [...]
