This Violent Empire

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter turns to two early republican novels to explore the ways they presented the intermix of sameness and difference, class, race, and gender during the opening days of the new Republic, when radical economic and political change intersected. These are Charles Brockden Brown's Arthur Mervyn and Leonora Sansay's Zelica, the Creole.

Keywords:   republican novels, gothic novels, Charles Brockden Brown, Leonora Sansay
