The novel ?Wieland' begins with a narration in the first person point of view. The exact identity and name of this narrator is not revealed to the reader but it later appears that it is a young lady narrating the events that happened to her family while she was young. In this way, the author succeeds in creating suspense and reader's attention is fully captured in the novel. From the very beginning, it can be understood that this tale aims at warning readers about certain evils related to deceit and indiscipline. In addition, the style of narration is absolutely diegetic; this implies that the fiction aspects in the novel are vividly told rather than being shown. The narrator describes in details all events that she can remember.

?I acknowledge your right to be informed of the events that have lately happened in my family? (Brown 1).
To begin with, the author has used symbolism in many instances to explain certain situations. In chapter five, a storm blowing outside and this can be a symbolism of the kind of storm raging in Clara's mind. At the moment, she has deep thoughts about Carwin and also imagines her brother will soon be consumed by some mysterious events and die. Moreover, Clara's narration of her family's death sets the pace for Wieland's later action in which he kills the wife and his children. However, it is evident that the narrator is not able to distinguish between what is real and what is not; she trusts her mind so much that she can't live beyond the realms of what she thinks.

The cultural context of this artistic work is also captivating. The events surrounding death of narrator's family are described and it leaves the reader imagining just where such things might have taken place. In this regard, it becomes impossible not to develop an interest in the novel and like it as well. Suspense is created just in the early chapters of the book which makes it difficult to ignore such artistic work.This is further enhanced by Clara's first person narration which appears perfect. She involves the reader in the events of the story and at some point it feels like we are part of her predicaments.

[...] However, there are also elements of superstition revealed. Clara sees a light in her room which frightens her; this light is also similar to that seen by her father before his death. Nonetheless, her father was believed to be an overzealous Christian who really upheld religious beliefs. had imbibed an opinion that it was his duty to disseminate the truths of the gospel among the unbelieving nations? (Brown 13). This book raises issues about life in the 17's when it was generally believed that peaceful co-existence was the order of the day. [...]
