Melville's evermoving dawn : centennial essays ( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Melville's Evermoving Dawn contains some of the best writing and thinking on Melville today. Represented here are scholars young and old, traditionalists and new historicists, who gathered at several conferences and venues throughout 1991, the centennial of Herman Melville's death. Meetings occured in Pittsfield, Massachusetts (where Melville wrote Moby-Dick, Pierre, and other works), New York City during Melville week (Sept. 22-28), and Washington, DC, at the Theater of the National Archives. The essays survey the past and present of Melville studies and suggest directions for the future
Bartleby the scrivener; a symposium by Herman Melville ( Book )
9 editions published between 1966 and 1980 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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. One day Bartleby declines the assignment his employer gives him with the inscrutable "I would prefer not." The utterance of this remark sets off a confounding set of actions and behavior, making the unsettling character of Bartleby one of Melville's most enigmatic and unforgettable creations
"Whole oceans away" : Melville and the Pacific ( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Essays on Melville and the culture of the Pacific"Like the young Melville, those who imagine Polynesia from the perspective of Europe or North America tend to envision a tropical garden set in a shining sea. But the Pacific experienced by a runaway American sailor in an earlier century presents a different picture, and the Pacifi c experienced by indigenous peoples of today a different one yet."-- from the IntroductionHerman Melville had a lifelong fascination with the Pacific and with the diverse island cultures that dotted this vast ocean. The essays in this collection articulate the intersection of Western and Pacific perspectives in Melville's work, from his early writings based on ocean voyages and encounters in the Pacific to Western modes of thought in relation to race and national identity. These essays interrogate familiar themes of Western colonialism while introducing fresh insights, including Melville's use of Pacific cartography, the art of tattooing, and his interest in evolutionary science.Using a variety of methodologies and approaches--postcolonial theory, cultural studies, linguistics, performance theory--"Whole Oceans Away" offers a valuable body of criticism for students of nineteenth-century American literature and history, cultural studies, and Pacific Rim studies
Ungraspable phantom : essays on Moby-Dick by John Bryant ( Book )

A collection of essays presented at the sesquicentenary Moby-Dick conferenceThe twenty-one essays collected in "Ungraspable Phantom" are from an international conference held in 2001 celebrating the 150th anniversary of the publication of Moby-Dick. The essays reflect not only a range of problems and approaches but also the cosmopolitan perspective of international scholarship. They offer new thoughts on familiar topics: the novel's problematic structure, its sources in and reinvention of the Bible, its Lacanian and post-Freudian psychology, and its rhetoric. They also present fresh information on new areas of interest: Melville's creative process, law and jurisprudence, Freemasonry and labor, race, Latin Americanism, and the Native American.Scholars, students, and readers of Moby-Dick will find this collection of essays fresh and insightful
