|Charles Brockden Brown is the author of Weiland; or, the Transformation: An American Tale; Arthur Mervyn, or Memoirs of the Year 1793; Ormond, and Edgar Huntley, or Memoirs of a Sleep-Walker. Brown was an ardent admirer of Godwin whose Caleb Williams inspired Arthur Mervyn. Godwin's Mandeville, in turn, was influenced by Wieland.||
Keats found Wieland Very Powerful. More clever in plot and incident than Godwin - A strange american scion of the German trunk. Powerful genius - accomplish'd horrors.
