MATTHEW GREGORY LEWIS ("MONK LEWIS")
English novelist and dramatist
(1775 - 1818)

On your hand, that pure altar, I vow,
  Though I've look'd and have lik'd, and have felt--
    That I never have lov'd--till now.
      - [Proposals]

A warrior so bold, and a virgin so bright,
  Conversed as they sat on the green.
    They gazed on each other with tender delight,
      Alonzo the Brave was the name of the knight--
        The maiden's the Fair Imogene.
      - Alonzo the Brave and the Fair Imogene,
        first appeared in his novel "Ambrosio the Monk"
        [Love]

O, hark! what mean those yells and cries?
  His chain some furious madman breaks;
    He comes--I see his glaring eyes:
      Now, now, my dungeon grate he shakes.
        Help! Help! He's gone!--O fearful woe,
          Such screams to hear, such sights to see!
            My brain, my brain,--I know, I know
              I am not mad but soon shall be.
      - The Maniac [Insanity]
