Brown, Charles Brockden: Memoirs of Carwin the Biloquist. v1. 29 Nov 2013
Charles Brockden Brown (January 17, 1771 – February 22, 1810), an American novelist, historian, and editor of the Early National period, is generally regarded by scholars as the most ambitious and accomplished US novelist before James Fenimore Cooper. He is the most frequently studied and republished practitioner of the "early American novel," or the US novel between 1789 and roughly 1820. Although Brown was by no means the first American novelist, as some early criticism claimed, the breadth and complexity of his achievement as a writer in multiple genres (novels, short stories, essays and periodical writings of every sort, poetry, historiography, reviews) makes him a crucial figure in US literature and culture of the 1790s and first decade of the 19th century, and a significant public intellectual in the wider Atlantic print culture and public sphere of the era of the French Revolution.
Imagine being able to perfectly imitate the voice of any man, woman or child. That's the remarkable talent that the young Carwin discovers and cultivates in himself. For the most part, Carwin uses his skills for noble ends. Will he be tempted to talk his way into a life of crime?
