Synopsis
This volume collects two of Melville’s most memorable and celebrated short fiction pieces, “Bartleby, the Scrivener” and “Benito Cereno.” A short story that largely reflected Melville’s own frustrations as a writer, “Bartleby, the Scrivener” tells the story of a Manhattan-based clerk and copyist who is driven by depression and self-determination to renounce the writing assignments and expectations demanded of him by his superiors. “Benito Cereno,” on the other hand, is a harrowing novella that revolves around a slave rebellion aboard a Spanish merchant ship and the utter depravity of the circumstances preceding it. Both works of extraordinary literary significance, they continue to showcase Melville at the peak of his creativity.
