Product Details

Praise

“Melville instinctively aspired to the grandest scale, and even in his shorter works offers vast inklings and the resonance of cosmic concerns.” — John Updike

“Melville seems to promise the very stuff of existence: time, space, air. We don’t so much read him as inhale him.” — Geoffrey O’Brien, Village Voice

“There are very few stories that, on re-reading after re-reading, seem to become impossibly more perfect, but Herman Melville’s eerie, aching story ‘Bartleby, the Scrivener’ is one such.” — Stuart Kelly, Guardian
