Prefiguring the work of Poe, Hawthorne, and Faulkner, as well as the entire tradition of American noir and horror, Brockden Brown was America's first professional novelist. This volume collects his most significant works: 'Wieland; or The Transformation' (1798), about a religious fanatic preyed upon by a sinister ventriloquist; 'Arthur Mervyn; Or, Memoirs of the Year 1793' (1799), with its devastating depiction of a yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia; and 'Edgar Huntly; or Memoirs of a Sleep-Walker' (1799), which recasts traditional Gothic themes in the American wilderness.
