About the Book
Melmoth The Wanderer (1820) is a gothic novel by Charles Robert Maturin. An Irish scholar, Melmoth, sells his soul to the devil in exchange for immortality. Melmoth wanders through his tortured life in search of someone who will take the bargain off his hands so that he can die a natural death.
About the Author
Charles Robert Maturin was an Irish clergyman whose early novels led Sir Walter Scott to recommend them to Byron. One of his plays was denounced by Coleridge, and the Church of Ireland barred Maturin's further promotion upon learning he had written it. Forced to support his wife and four children by writing, he returned to novels. Maturin died in Dublin in 1824. There were unsubstantiated rumors of suicide.
