Sobre l'autor

Charles Brockden Brown was born on January 17, 1771 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After he completed his schooling in 1787, he began apprenticing at the law offices of Alexander Wilcocks and pursued literary interests. When he was 18, he published his first literary works: the Rhapsodist sketches, mostra'n més which appeared anonymously in the Columbian Magazine, and a poem entitled An Inscription for General Washington's Tomb Stone, which appeared in the State Gazette of North Carolina. In 1793, he abandoned the law to attempt a life of letters. Within four years, between 1789 and 1801, he published six novels: Wieland, Ormand, Arthur Mervyn, Edgar Huntly, Clara Howard and Jane Talbot. He died of tuberculosis on February 22, 1810.

Coneixement comú



Written in 1799 this "gothic" tale is set in Philadelphia. It's labeled as gothic, however, I don't find a lot of the normal gothic elements contained within. It is the story of Constantia, a single women who cares for her down and out, blind father. There are scoundrels along the way and she deals with each righteously. She may be a bit naive, or is she just very humble? This was a very slow-paced book which focused on character development. Written as 3 separate works (Vol 1, Vol 11 and Vol 111). However, they must be read in order and completely before the story can be understood. They are all free on Kindle. 348 pages… (més)
