Charles Brockden Brown, American novelist, was born to a Quaker family in Philadelphia. While living in New York (1798-1810) he founded the Monthly Magazine and American Review (1799-1800). Returning to Philadelphia he edited the Literary Magazine and American Register (1803-07), and, before his death from consumption, the American Register or General Repository (1807-10). Brown is remembered as a romantic novelist influenced by William Godwin.
