"Paul Felton" is an 1822 novella by Richard Henry Dana, Sr. (1787-1879) combining romance, murder, and elements of the supernatural. The book offers a distinctly American take on the Gothic literary tradition, re-imagining America's unsettled landscape as a site of temptation and minions of evil. Originally published in Dana's literary journal "The Idle Man," "Paul Felton" has not been published in wide distribution in modern times. This edition, with a new prologue and minor commentary, opens the door to new scholarship and understanding on this book.
