9780820330969: Hawthorne and Melville: Writing a Relationship

Herman Melville and Nathaniel Hawthorne met in 1850 and enjoyed for sixteen months an intense but brief friendship. Taking advantage of new interpretive tools such as queer theory, globalist studies, political and social ideology, marketplace analysis, psychoanalytical and philosophical applications to literature, masculinist theory, and critical studies of race, the twelve essays in this book focus on a number of provocative personal, professional, and literary ambiguities existing between the two writers.

Jana L. Argersinger and Leland S. Person introduce the volume with a lively summary of the known biographical facts of the two writers’ relationship and an overview of the relevant scholarship to date. Some of the essays that follow broach the possibility of sexual dimensions to the relationship, a question that “looms like a grand hooded phantom” over the field of Melville-Hawthorne studies. Questions of influence―Hawthorne’s on Moby-Dick and Pierre and Melville’s on The Blithedale Romance, to mention only the most obvious instances―are also discussed. Other topics covered include professional competitiveness; Melville’s search for a father figure; masculine ambivalence in the marketplace; and political-literary aspects of nationalism, transcendentalism, race, and other defining issues of Hawthorne and Melville’s times.

Roughly half of the essays focus on biographical issues; the others take literary perspectives. The essays are informed by a variety of critical approaches, as well as by new historical insights and new understandings of the possibilities that existed for male friendships in nineteenth-century American culture.

About the Author:

Jana L. Argersinger is a coeditor of ESQ: A Journal of the American Renaissance and Poe Studies/Dark Romanticism and serves as president of the Council of Editors of Learned Journals. Leland S. Person is a professor of English at the University of Cincinnati. His books include The Cambridge Introduction to Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Review:

This engaging—sometimes even moving—collection produces a compelling, multidirectional dialogue about how readers might understand the substance of the provocatively cryptic relationship between Herman Melville and Nathaniel Hawthorne. Whatever their answers, the essays included here manage to convey the critical liveliness that each scholar brings to the incomplete dialogue between these two centrally important U.S. writers.

(Dana D. Nelson Vanderbilt University)

This provocative book, as it examines the complex relationship between Hawthorne and Melville, yields a series of engrossing and deeply informed readings of their lives and their works. The contributors to this volume have obviously freed themselves from the tradition of a cautious and muted approach to the Hawthorne-Melville relationship and, by taking a new, boldly imaginative and speculative approach, have arrived at rich new understandings of the relationship, especially its sexual and political dynamics. The result is a major contribution to scholarship of the period.

(Larry J. Reynolds author of European Revolutions and the American Literary Renaissance)
