Book Description
The ensuing day was spent, partly in sleep, and partly in languor and disquietude. I incessantly ruminated on the incidents of the last night. The scheme that I had formed was defeated. Was it likely that this unknown person would repeat his midnight visits to the Elm? If he did, and could again be discovered, should I resolve to undertake a new pursuit, which might terminate abortively, or in some signal disaster? But what proof had I that the same rout would be taken, and that he would again inter himself alive in the same spot? --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description
Illuminates this important but often neglected author, using gender and sexuality theories, as well as drawing upon his nonfiction output, to reenergize Brown’s work.

From the Inside Flap
Charles Brockden Brown (1771–1810), a prolific and often controversial writer, has long been recognized as a significant figure in U.S. literary and cultural history. Brown’s prose fiction, periodical writings, historiography, and pamphlets take part in the full range of political, literary, scientific, and other debates that form the cultural landscape of the first decades of the American republic from 1790 to 1810. Scholarship in the twentieth century developed a general understanding of Brown as an ambitious novelist but only began to explore the full extent of his writings...

Godwinian Novel: The Rational Fictions of Godwin, Brockden Brown, Mary Shelley
Pamela Clemit
0198112203
January 1993
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The Godwinian Novel is a pioneering analysis of the school of fiction inaugurated by William Godwin, and developed in the works of his principal followers, Charles Brockden Brown and Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. In the first study of these authors as a historically specific group, Pamela
Clemit argues for a greater unity between Godwin's fictional techniques and his radical political philosophy than has been perceived. Her analysis of the works of Brown and Mary Shelley, moreover, reveals how these writers modified, reshaped, and redefined Godwin's distinctive themes and techniques
in response to shifting ideological pressures in the post-revolutionary period. Examining prose fiction in a period traditionally seen as dominated by poetry, Clemit stresses the necessity for a revised view of British Romanticism. ...

Book Description
One of the earliest major American novels, Wieland (1798) is a thrilling tale of suspense and intrigue set in rural Pennsylvania in the 1760s. Based on an actual case of a New York farmer who murdered his family, the novel employs Gothic devices and sensational elements such as spontaneous
combustion, ventriloquism, and religious fanaticism. Also included is Memoirs of Carwin the Biloquist, the unfinished sequal to Wieland, in which Brown considers power and manipulation while tracing Carwin's career as a disciple of the utopist Ludloe.

The Ethics of Exile
Timothy Fran Strode
0415975530
Aug 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The book investigates the problem of how narrative, normally conceived of temporally, encodes its relation to space, especially the territorial space that is the subject of colonial possession and dispossession. The book approaches this problem by, first, providing a theoretical framework derived from the work of Martin Heidegger and Emmanuel Levinas on the ethical and political implications of human dwelling, and, second, by using this framework to examine cultural forms in two historical periods, colonial America and postcolonial South Africa--the primary interest being the works of Charles Brockden Brown and J. M. Coetzee. This book is unique in its elaboration of a spatial-or more exactly, territorial--conception of narrative form.

Book Description
From 1803 to 1807, Charles Brockden Brown served as editor and chief contributor to the Literary Magazine, and American Register, a popular Philadelphia miscellany. His position allowed him to observe and comment upon life in the United States and transatlantic world during the nineteenth century’s first decade. This book considers how Brown’s Literary Magazine contributed to the development of cultural cohesiveness and political stability in the young United States. It explores the intellectual and cultural setting in which this Philadelphia miscellany was published, the political writing that appears in what Brown claimed was a politically neutral venue, and the social and cultural criticism that attempts to guide the development of the American character. During his twenty years as an author, he...

American Sympathy: Men, Friendship, and Literature in the New Nation
Caleb Crain
0300083327
May 2001
Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
Lingua Franca contributing editor Crain examines the tradition of sympathy and friendship between men in early American life and literature. Interpreting Charles Brockden Brown's novels Wieland and Arthur Mervyn, Emerson's essay "Friendship," and Melville's Billy Budd, Crain shows how a tradition of male discourse and ideas presents itself through personal life, friendships, and artistic creations. Using the writings of Plato, Montaigne, Bacon, and Adam Smith and insights gained from letters and diaries of the period, Crain follows a history of the ideas of friendship and compassion as they change and develop. The romantic aspect of the death of the British spy John Andre, early American diarists in Philadelphia, William Godwin's influence on Brown's thinking, the circle of friends around Margaret...
