Charles Brockden Brown was America's first successful novelist, but he is sadly neglected and unread now and was not even mentioned in the American lit. courses I took. His books have a Gothic element, but were also deeply interested in the young American Republic, in extreme mental states, in the tension between reason and irrationality, and in the darkness he saw as part of the new country. As such, he is forefather to the great dark Romantic writers like Melville, Poe, and Hawthorne. In this novel, published in 1799, he also explores the uneasy relationship between whites and Native Americans, a theme Cooper would soon take up, albeit in a more optimistic form. An important American novel from an important American writer in dire need of rediscovery.
