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 )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 45 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

Edgar Huntly; or, Memoirs of a sleep-walker by Charles Brockden Brown( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Edgar Huntly is the story of a young man who sleepwalks each night, a threat to himself and others, unable to control his baser passions. Set outside Philadelphia in 1787, the book becomes a metaphor for the founding of a new nation. Its characters face the problems confronted by the framers of the Constitution: how to harness the irrational, passionate aspects of man's nature without sacrificing individual liberty."--Back cover

Wieland ; and Memoirs of Carwin the biloquist by Charles Brockden Brown( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Theodore Wieland hears mysterious voices. Are these the result of delusions, ventriloquism, or divine forces? In this Gothic thriller, novelist Charles Brockden Brown (1771-1810) portrays a man beset by religious guilt which erupts into mania, transforming him into the murderer of his wife and children. Once the mystery of the controlling voices is revealed, Theodore's sister, Clara, undergoes her own transformation, as she moves from bitterness and despair over her brother's destruction to resignation and, finally, peace. Brown's fascination with the scientifically bizarre and the macabre influenced Edgar Allan Poe and Nathaniel Hawthorne. But he sought the solutions to his mysteries in nature and in the depths of the human mind, rather than in the realm of the supernatural."--Jacket

Wieland, or, The transformation : an American tale ; Memoirs of Carwin the biloquist by Charles Brockden Brown( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This first volume in Kent State University's Bicentennial Edition of the Novels and Related Works of Charles Brockden Brown presents critical texts of Brown's first published novel, Wieland, and of the fragment, Carwin, which he began in 1798 as a companion-piece to his novel. The texts are based on the first printings: the book edition of Wieland printed by T. and J. Swords in New York and published there by Hocquet Caritat in 1798, and the installments of Carwin that appeared in the Literary Magazine in Philadelphia in 1803, 1804, and 1805. The Historical Essay by Alexander Cowie, which follows the texts, discusses the facts surrounding the composition, publication, and reception of both works and their place in America's literary history, and the Textual Essay by S.W. Reid discusses the copy-texts for the present edition, the transmission of the texts, and the editorial decisions that have been based on these considerations. Also appended are photographs of the notebook pages containing Brown's Outline of Wieland, along with our transcription of it. Moreover, as the first in a series of volumes, this volume offers, as well, a note on the principles and procedures guiding the editing of all works in the Bicentennial Edition
