“Leixlip Castle” is a 1825 novel by Charles R. Maturin. Charles Robert Maturin (1782 – 1824) was a writer of Gothic literature and Irish Protestant clergyman best known for the novel “Melmoth the Wanderer”, a story about a scholar who sold his soul to the devil in exchange for 150 extra years of life. This gripping novel will appeal to lovers of Gothic literature and is not to be missed by those who have read and enjoyed other works by this seminal author. Other notable works by Maturin include: “The Fatal Revenge” (1807), “The Wild Irish Boy (1808)”, and “The Milesian Chief” (1812). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
