Herman Melville (1819-91) became in his late twenties a highly successful author of exotic novels based on his experiences as a sailor - writing in quick succession Typee, Omoo, Redburn and White-Jacket. However, his masterpiece Moby-Dick was met with incomprehension and the other later works which are now the basis of his reputation, such as Bartleby, the Scrivener and The Confidence-Man, were failures. Melville stopped writing fiction and the rest of his long life was spent first as a lecturer and then, for nineteen years, as a customs official in New York City. He was also the author of the immensely long poem Clarel, which was similarly dismissed. At the end of his life he wrote Billy Budd, Sailor which was published posthumously in 1924.Reseña del editor:
This collection of works covers a wide range of topics. From the conflicts between society and individual to the manner in which the social institutes are dealt and controlled, this work covers a lot. The evils of a judicial system gone astray and the resultant desperations and failures are amazingly portrayed. Thought-provoking!
