MATURIN, Charles Robert. Fatal Revenge (1807)

Contemporary Reviews

Flowers of Literature (1807): lvii.

The Infidel Mother, Julian, or my Father’s House, and The Fatal Revenge, by D. J. Murphy, all display considerable talent. The one last mentioned, in particular, is of all others which the year has furnished, most replete with incidents of a horrific and mysterious nature, introduced in a grand and poetical, though frequently pompous mode of expression—the usual attempt of a vivid fancy—and (as Mr. M. describes himself) a very young man.
