Robert Montgomery Bird, America's first internationally successful playwright, also wrote seven novels, includingNick of the Woods.Sheppard Lee, his most appealing work, is the story of a young idler who goes in search of buried treasure and finds instead the power to transfer his soul into other men's bodies. What follows is a picaresque journey through early American pursuits of happiness, as each body inhabited by Sheppard Lee reshapes his desires and makes him want more and more. When Lee's metempsychosis takes him into the marriage market, the money market, and the slave market, Bird's fable of American upward mobility takes a more sinister turn. Lee learns that everything in America, even virtue and vice, are interchangeable; everything is an object and has its price. Twenty years before Melville'sThe Confidence-Man, Bird'sSheppard Leepresents a penetrating critique of American life and values that is still relevant today.
