Wieland: Or, the Transformation: An American Tale and Other Stories (Modern Library Classics)by Charles Brockden Brown
Synopses & Reviews
Called a “remarkable story” by John Greenleaf Whittier and described by John Keats as “very powerful,” Wieland, Charles Brockden Browns disturbing 1798 tale of terror, is a masterpiece involving spontaneous combustion, disembodied voices, religious mania, and a gruesome murder based on a real-life incident.
This Modern Library Paperback Classic includes Wielands fragmentary sequel, Memoirs of Carwin the Biloquist, as well as several other important but hard-to-find Brockden Brown short stories, including “Thessalonica,” “Walsteins School of History,” and “Death of Cicero.” This collection also reproduces the newspaper account of the murder that inspired Wieland.
