Melmoth the wanderer; a tale by Charles Robert Maturin( Book )

237 editions published between 1820 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 2,360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This violent, profound, baroque and blackly humorous novel is the story of Melmoth, who has sold his soul in exchange for immortality in a satanic bargain, and now preys on the helpless in their darkest moments, offering to ease their suffering if they will take his place and release him from his centuries of tortured wanderings. Melmoth the wanderer (1820) blended Gothic fiction and psychological realism to create a work of hallucinatory power."--Amazon.com

"The author of Melmoth the wanderer (1820) was an Anglican curate in Dublin struggling to maintain his family when Bertram, with the support of Scott and Byron, was produced at Drury Lane. It is a play of violent and excessive emotions. Kean played the title role, one of those villain-heroes descended from Schiller's Moor, and made the part his own. There were opportunities for elaborate stage effects, notably the storm in the first act. The audience was in the mood for Gothic melodrama, and the production was a resounding success, making for its author about 1,000. Coleridge (whose Remorse three years earlier earned 400) wrote a destructive critique of the play: though audiences of today's Theatre of Cruelty, used to drama dealing in emotional states rather than character and narrative, are unlikely to find his criticisms as devastating as Maturin did at the time. And the language, mocked by Coleridge, in its quieter passages has a steady power."--Jacket
