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.

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...
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 !!
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.
