he romanticized. He saw in man a dignity which only the days of hopeful revolution can bestow, and he was thus urged to study souls with a passion which took him past the outward facts of humanity to a certain essential truth which gives him, among his contemporaries, his special virtue. In April, 1799, Brown began to edit The Monthly magazine in New York and so entered the decade of journalism which closed his life. He wrote, indeed, besides fragments of fiction, two other novels, Clara Howard (1801) and Jane Talbot (1801), but they lack his old vigour. In Jane Talbot he seemed to renounce Godwin; gradually he became subdued to humanity and lost his concern with romance. He returned to Philadelphia in 1800, where, two years later, he founded The literary magazine. The stolid orthodoxy of his prospectus makes it clear that he was no longer a philosopher of the old stamp, although he did write two acts of a tragedy for John Bernard, and, told the play would not act, burned the

f Alcuin (1797), dealt with questions of marriage and divorce, and he was also the author of several essays on political, historical, and geographical subjects. His novels followed each other with astonishing rapidity: Sky Walk; or the man unknown to himself (1798, not published), Wieland; or the Transformation (1798), Ormond ; or the secret witness (1799), Arthur Mervyn ; or Mlemoirs of the year 1793 (1799-1800), Edgar Huntly; or memoirs of a sleep Walker (1801), Jane Talbot (1801), and Clara Howard; or the enthusiasm of love (1801). When, thirty years later, in 1834, the historian Jared Sparks undertook the publication of a Library of American biography, he included in the very first volumewith a literary instinct most creditable to one so absorbed in the severer tasks of history -a memoir of Charles Brockden Brown by W.

He was really the first American to make a profession of literature. He first undertook the study of law, and it was not till 1798 that Wieland, his first romance, was published. The rest of his works followed in quick succession: Ormond in 1799; Arthur Mervyn, Part I in 1798, Part II in 1800; Edgar Huntley in 1799; Clara Howard in 1801 ; and Jane Talbot in 1704. In the mean time he had become an editor, having in charge between 1799 and 1808 The monthly magazine and American Review (New York) and The literary magazine and American Register (Philadelphia). He wrote also Alcuin, a dialogue on the rights of women (1797); several political pamphlets ; a General Geography; and a treatise on Rome during the age of the Antonines.
