This study of the works of late eighteenth-century American Gothic author Charles Brockden Brown argues that Brown was a seminal figure in the development of four forms of Gothic fiction: the Frontier Gothic, the Urban Gothic, the Psychological Gothic, and the Female Gothic; that Brown represents a crucial transitional figure between the Age of the Enlightenment and nineteenth-century Romanticism; and that Brown used his fiction in progressive ways to address issues of women’s rights, slavery, and anti-Semitism.
