In this new reprint of the six stories that comprised the 1856 edition of The Piazza Tales, the editors of the acclaimed Northwestern-Newberry Edition of the Writings of Herman Melville have used the original magazine versions for five of the six stories in order to present the most accurate texts of these works. Here, in such famous stories as "Bartleby, the Scrivener" and "The Encantadas, or Enchanted Isles," we find Melville's imagination and style at its best. Of the less well-known tales, the humor in "The Piazza" and "The Lightning-Rod Man," and the gothic horror of "The Bell Tower," command our careful attention as well.

Po vypuknutí americké revoluce opustí Izrael svou farmu, bojuje u Bunker Hillu, zúčastní se několika námořních bitev a je dvakráte zajat. Poválečná léta prožívá v bídě mezi londýnskou chudinou. Teprve jako osmdesátiletý stařec se vrací se svým synem do vlasti. Jeho rodný kraj je změněn, nikdo ho již nezná, jeho žádost o pensi je zamítnuta: umírá zklamán a chud. Na osudu Izraela Pottera M. ukázal, že ideály americké revoluce nepřinesly prostým lidem, kteří z ně prolévali svou krev, ani svobodu, ani naději na lepší život. (Podle předml.)

Bartleby the Scrivener (1853), by Herman Melville, tells the story of a quiet, hardworking legal copyist who works in an office in the Wall Street area of New York City.
