Biographie de l'auteur

Herman Melville (August 1, 1819 – September 28, 1891) was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist, and poet. He is best known for his novel Moby-Dick. His first three books gained much contemporary attention (the first, Typee, became a bestseller), but after a fast-blooming literary success in the late 1840s, his popularity declined precipitously in the mid-1850s and never recovered during his lifetime. When he died in 1891, he was almost completely forgotten. It was not until the "Melville Revival" in the early 20th century that his work won recognition, especially Moby-Dick, which was hailed as one of the literary masterpieces of both American and world literature. In 1919, the unfinished manuscript for his novella Billy Budd was discovered by his first biographer. He published a version in 1924, which was quickly acclaimed by notable British critics as another masterpiece of Melville's. He was the first writer to have his works collected and published by the Library of America.

quel humour décapant pour l'époque, un vrai moment de bonheur avec ce "scribe" bien déjanté.Malgré le décalage d'époque, on croirait se trouver dans un bureau de notre temps!

Bartelby is a story that makes you want to read Melville!
The narrator is a notary who will one day pass an ad to recruit a scribe in his study. It was then that Bartleby comes into play. Over time this being that was first shown working, conscientious, smooth, speaking to no one, gradually reveals another part of his personality: he refuses some work that his boss asked him, saying that he "would prefer not to" make, and does not. And this sentence then returns consistently in his mouth: "I ​​would prefer not to."
In this sense, Bartleby is a unique and original character, exciting, avant-garde literature and a phenomenon which may be called passive resistance.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 To Me Personally, Interesting More Than Enjoyable 24 juillet 2016
Par FCD117 - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I am very glad I read this. It is very interesting on many levels. However, I cannot say it was really an artistic pleasure to read.

The story can be read from many standpoints. Was that the author's intention? I wish I knew. I do not know. Obviously, the story is written by Herman Melville. That alone makes it worth the effort in terms of the study of literature.

Bartley is pretty much the only character who is actually named. Certainly Herman Melville is sophisticated enough that I can assume that is intentional. I feel that a sense of isolation is created, by the author, amid an urban environment. Then we find Bartleby had worked in a "dead letter" office. It is my understanding that Mr. Melville himself was becoming a somewhat forgotten author in his own lifetime.

In the course of further study, I found that the story did not find immediate acclaim but has since become iconic. This is true with many works. "The Great Gadsby", which I truly love, comes to mind. But I had to read The Great Gadsby twice, and all of F. Scott Fitgerald's work in between, in order to really come to appreciate The Great Gadsby. I do not feel that way about this story. But I really enjoyed it as a reading experience. Thank You...

This story strikes a chord for numerous reasons and can be read on many levels. Modern readers can still relate to Bartleby's sense of hopelessness, but just what is causing his ennui? A myriad of influences converge to make the case for his listlessness. Not to mention the lawyer who is Bartleby's boss and also the narrator of the story plays his part in handling his employees passiveness in a passive way. The symbolism of being walled in cuts to the quick, and the drudgery of work on my well-being does as well. If ever there were a great example of all that the short story form can accomplish, Melville's tale is a shining example.

Definitely not an easy read, you actually need to concentrate to read this book, I literally felt my brain switch gears to keep up with what the narrator was saying. Nevertheless, thats what makes this story so good, it is meant to tickle your brain and invite you to come up with your own ideas of what the text means and how it relates to your life. Bartleby is meant to create conversation and controversy, which it evidently does, and is the reason why this story is so acclaimed.
Two quick words of advice, have a dictionary nearby to look up the various puzzling nouns, verbs, and adjectives Melville uses. Also, look up online videos or websites/blogs/articles that review Bartleby and can help you formulate your own ideas.
Learning the vocabulary and doing a bit of research is what leads you to find a truth that you can relate to and in turn makes disecting literature so interesting. This is a perfect story to learn lots from and to prepare you for other peices of literature.
Goodluck and happy reading !!

This little book was fascinating to me on three levels. First it takes place in the same building as my first employment on Wall Street. Thus it had a fascination for me and bringing back memories thatI had not thought aboutfor many years. Second it provoked some interesting thought about how things were before there were any mechanical means of copying documents. The description of a teamwriting copies of a document and then sitting around reading each one to make sure that each was the same as the other was interesting. But more than that Melville create an adequate description of the tedious aspect of document preparation. But of course the story proceeds with an interesting juxtaposition of an extremely passive personality with another person who uses passivity in a very aggressive way. I don't think I will ever hear the words spoken by Bartleby in the same way again "I prefer not."

Par Michele Rodriguez - Publié sur

Bartleby the Scrivener" is one of Melville's most famous stories. It is also one of the most difficult to interpret. For decades, critics have argued over numerous interpretations of the story. The plot is deceptively simple. The Lawyer, a well-established man of sixty working on Wall Street, hires a copyist--seemingly no different from any other copyist, though the Lawyer is well-accustomed to quirky copyists. But Bartleby is different. Bartleby's initial response of "I would prefer not to," seems innocent at first, but soon it becomes an essential part of Bartleby's character.

Melville had a unique gift for description and contemplation in his writing, and his short stories (and many of his novels) unfold very slowly and thoughtfully. Melville's narrator, the Lawyer, slowly unfolds the events of the story, taking his time to provide small details that better set the scene or highlight a character. Melville is a very methodical writer. His stories are generally paced very slowly with one or two scenes of intense action. This slow build up to a swift climax causes the reader to reconsider the importance of previous details. The prose is subtle, but engages the reader to consider philosophies and different worldviews without ever sounding preachy.

It is an excellent and quick read.
