Sailor, cetologist, political commentator and New Yorker, Herman Melville was the champion of those whose stories are not often told, the intimate person trapped in a societal identity.
Melville left an incredibly diverse body of work that remains one of the most radical and unrelenting defenses of the individual. We will read his first published novel, Typee, which gained him fame as “the man who lived among the cannibals,” as well as Moby Dick, “Bartleby the Scrivener” and other shorter texts, while paying close attention to his narrative voice, rich sense of humor and the profundity of his themes.
Class meets Sundays September 19, October 17, November 14 and December 12.
