Wieland; or The Transformation, An American Tale by Charles Brockden Brown, James P. Lynch

"My wife!" I exclaimed: "O God! Make me not the butcher of my wife!"

A shadow falls over the Enlightenment when a stranger pays a visit in this tale of one family's slide down the slippery slope of reality. Featuring spontaneous combustion, demonic ventriloquism, murder and madness, Wieland offers a wealth of high weirdness for fans of the paranormal. The Invisible College Press is pleased to resurrect this forgotten classic of dark literature.

This edition includes a comprehensive biography of Charles Brockden Brown from the 1856 edition of the Cyclopaedia of American Literature, and an introduction from noted scholar James P. Lynch.
