Herman Melville, mariner and mystic by Raymond M Weaver( Book )

40 editions published between 1921 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All of Melville's books were out of print by 1876, and when he died in 1891 he was considered an extremely minor figure in American literature. Raymond Weaver's 1921 biography of Melville helped kick off a rediscovery and reappreciation of Melville's work that is today called the "Melville Revival." In these pages, Weaver traces Melville's life from his brief career as a sailor, through his early literary success with the classic travel tales "Typee" and "Omoo," and into his later obscurity and death. Weaver is particularly concerned with the spiritual and philosophical side of Melville's work and offers explanations for some of the author's more obscure passages
