Memoirs of a sleep-walker.
|責任：||Charles Brockden Brown ; edited with an introduction by Norman S. Grabo.|
"Edgar Huntly is the story of a young man who sleepwalks each night, a threat to himself and others, unable to control his baser passions. Set outside Philadelphia in 1787, the book becomes a metaphor for the founding of a new nation. Its characters face the problems confronted by the framers of the Constitution: how to harness the irrational, passionate aspects of man's nature without sacrificing individual liberty." -- back cover.
