Sull'Autore

Herman Melville (August 1, 1819 - September 28, 1891) was born into a seemingly secure, prosperous world, a descendant of prominent Dutch and English families long established in New York State. That security vanished when first, the family business failed, and then, two years later, in young mostra altro Melville's thirteenth year, his father died. Without enough money to gain the formal education that professions required, Melville was thrown on his own resources and in 1841 sailed off on a whaling ship bound for the South Seas. His experiences at sea during the next four years were to form in part the basis of his best fiction. Melville's first two books, Typee (1846) and Omoo (1847), were partly romance and partly autobiographical travel books set in the South Seas. Both were popular successes, particularly Typee, which included a stay among cannibals and a romance with a South Sea maiden. During the next several years, Melville published three more romances that drew upon his experiences at sea: Redburn (1849) and White-Jacket (1850), both fairly realistic accounts of the sailor's life and depicting the loss of innocence of central characters; and Mardi (1849), which, like the other two books, began as a romance of adventure but turned into an allegorical critique of contemporary American civilization. Moby Dick (1851) also began as an adventure story, based on Melville's experiences aboard the whaling ship. However, in the writing of it inspired in part by conversations with his friend and neighbor Hawthorne and partly by his own irrepressible imagination and reading of Shakespeare and other Renaissance dramatists Melville turned the book into something so strange that, when it appeared in print, many of his readers and critics were dumbfounded, even outraged. By the mid-1850s, Melville's literary reputation was all but destroyed, and he was obliged to live the rest of his life taking whatever jobs he could find and borrowing money from relatives, who fortunately were always in a position to help him. He continued to write, however, and published some marvelous short fiction pieces Benito Cereno" (1855) and "Bartleby, the Scrivener" (1853) are the best. He also published several volumes of poetry, the most important of which was Battle Pieces and Aspects of the War (1866), poems of occasionally great power that were written in response to the moral challenge of the Civil War. His posthumously published work, Billy Budd (1924), on which he worked up until the time of his death, became Melville's last significant literary work, a brilliant short novel that movingly describes a young sailor's imprisonment and death. Melville's reputation, however, rests most solidly on his great epic romance, Moby Dick. It is a difficult as well as a brilliant book, and many critics have offered interpretations of its complicated ambiguous symbolism. Darrel Abel briefly summed up Moby Dick as "the story of an attempt to search the unsearchable ways of God," although the book has historical, political, and moral implications as well. Melville died at his home in New York City early on the morning of September 28, 1891, at age 72. The doctor listed "cardiac dilation" on the death certificate. He was interred in the Woodlawn Cemetery in The Bronx, New York, along with his wife, Elizabeth Shaw Melville. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra meno

Breve biografia
Herman Melville, American author, was born in New York City on the 1st of August 1819. He shipped as a cabin-boy at the age of eighteen, thus being enabled to make his first visit to England, and at twenty-two sailed for a long whaling cruise in the Pacific. After a year and a half he deserted his ship at the Marquesas Islands, on account of the cruelty of the captain; was captured by cannibals on the island of Nukahiva, and detained, without hardship, four months; was rescued by the crew of an Australian vessel, which he joined, and two years later reached New York. Thereafter, with the exception of a passenger voyage around the world in 1860, Melville remained in the United States, devoting himself to literature -- though for a considerable period (1866-1885) he held a post in the New York custom-house -- and being perhaps Hawthorne's most intimate friend among the literary men of America. His writings were numerous, but judged of varying merit by his contemporaries; his verse, patriotic and other was forgotten; and his works of fiction and of travel were deemed of irregular execution. Nevertheless, few authors have been enabled so freely to introduce romantic personal experiences into their books. He portrayed seafaring life and character with vigour and originality, and from a personal knowledge equal to that of Cooper, Marryat or Clark Russell. But these records of adventure were followed by other tales that his contemporaries found so turgid, eccentric, opinionative, and loosely written as to seem the work of another author. He died a failed author in New York on the 28th of September 1891. The 20th century's collective reassessment of his work is much more favorable, and he is now classed among the greatest American writers.

Recensioni

Questo libro è la storia di una dannazione. Il capitano Ahab decide di dedicare la propria sfida e immolare la sua anima ad un compito di odio: uccidere un Nemico impersonale, eterno ed anche invisibile, nonostante la sua grossa presenza. Ahab non è soltanto un cacciatore vendicativo, la sua può essere considerata quasi una devozione, una missione, un compito implacabile, quasi per giustificare quella che poi sarà la sua dannazione. Melville scrisse in una lettera al suo amico Hawthorne: "Ho scritto un libro malvagio, ma io mi sento come un agnello". La balena bianca, enorme per grandezza e anche per dignità ed orrore, manifesta la sua potenza odiosa con la sua presenza costante, odiosa sì ma anche solenne, una divinità inferiore e sopraumana, quasi una divinità, di cui bisogna parlare sempre, sulla quale scorrono leggende e sulla quale bisogna versare un odio devoto. Non è un dio che si propone alla ragione o all'animo cristiano. In essa confluisce qualcosa simile ad un dio puritano, un nume selvatico, maligno, necessario, animale grandissimo che bisogna uccidere per poi nutrirsi di esso. Un libro questo che va letto e riletto ....… (altro)

Un piccolo gioiello questo breve racconto di Melville, molto particolare sia per la forma che per la storia. Un avvocato ha tre uomini che lo aiutano a trascrivere gli atti. Il primo Turkey, affabile e gentile la mattina ed aggressivo il pomeriggio; il secondo Nippers che dopo le prime ore di lavoro, in cui è aggressivo e violento, si trasforma in una sorta di agnello. E un giovane fattorino, Ginger Nut, sempre affabile e disponibile. L’avvocato è gentile e educato con i suoi collaboratori e accetta le stranezze dei due. Ad un certo punto assume un altro collaboratore, appunto Bartleby che all’inizio dimostra attenzione e dedizione al lavoro. Il problema sorge quando l’avvocato gli chiede di svolgere mansioni non direttamente attinenti alla scrittura degli atti. La risposta diventa puntualmente un preferirei di no. E man mano il rifiuto di Bartleby di fare cose naturali diventa il centro della storia. Storia, come detto, molto molto particolare con un profondo senso di umanità che ha un senso che va ben oltre quello della storia del rapporto tra l’avvocato e Bartleby. Devo dire veramente un racconto delizioso.… (altro)
