Arthur Mervyn : or, Memoirs of the year 1793 : first and second parts by Charles Brockden Brown( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Brockden Brown (1771-1810) was our first American novelist. The earliest citizen of the young nation to support himself by 'the profession of literature, ' Brown used the American scene as background for his fiction. Arthur Mervyn, his third published novel, has long puzzled students and scholars with its seeming diffuseness, resulting from its original serial publication. Critics agree, however, that the power of this novel lies not so much in its portrait of 'right virtue, ' which was Brown's primary aim, as in its realistic descriptions of the yellow fever epidemic and the ensuing panic that swept Philadelphia in the summer of 1793. The ambiguities of Arthur Mervyn's character and the precarious nature of the revolutionary 1790s make this novel a particularly apt subject for lively discussion and future scholarship and make this revised edition an excellent classroom text. This paperback edition reprints the novel's text and historical overview of Volume III of the highly regarded Bicentennial Edition of The Novels of Charles Brockden Brown, edited by Sydney J. Krause and S.W. Reid, and includes an updated editorial note and bibliography
Edgar Huntly; or, Memoirs of a sleep-walker by Charles Brockden Brown( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Often described as a gothic novel, this is a classic American tale of mystery and murder with exciting and dramatic plot twists. Charles Brockden Brown is the most frequently studied and republished practitioner of the early American novel, or the US novel between 1789 and roughly 1820. This volume contains a critical edition of Charles Brockden Brown's Edgar Huntly, the third of his novels to be published in 1799 and the first to deal with the American wilderness. The basis of the text is the first edition, printed and published by Hugh Maxwell in Philadelphia late in the year, but the Fragment printed independently in Brown's Monthly Magazine earlier in 1799 supplies some readings in Chapters 17-20. The Historical Essay, which follows the text, covers matters of composition, publication, historical background, and literary evaluation, and the Textual Essay discusses the transmission of the text, choice of copy-text, and editorial policy. A general textual statement for the entire edition appears in Volume I of the series
