Called a "remarkable story" by John Greenleaf Whittier and described by John Keats as "very powerful," "Wieland," Charles Brockden Brown's 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 "Wieland"'s fragmentary sequel, "Memoirs of Carwin the Biloquist," as well as several other important but hard-to-find Brockden Brown short stories, including "Thessalonica," "Walstein's School of History," and "Death of Cicero." This collection also reproduces the newspaper account of the murder that inspired "Wieland."
