Description by

From 1803 to 1807, the seminal American novelist Charles Brockden Brown served as editor and chief contributor to the Literary Magazine and American Register, a popular Philadelphia miscellany. In this position he commented on life in the United States and transatlantic world during the nineteenth century's first decade.

This book considers how Brown's Literary Magazine contributed to cultural cohesiveness and political stability in the young United States. It explores the intellectual and cultural setting of the magazine, the political writing in what Brown claimed was a politically neutral venue, and the social and cultural criticism that attempted to guide the development of the American character.
