NARRATIVA NORTEAMERICANA. Tras un periodo de injustificado olvido, la figura de Herman Melville (1819-1891) fue rescatada por la critica de los años 20, para situarle entre los grandes escritores del siglo XIX. Las tres obras conjugan magistralmente los elementos caracteristicos de su estilo: la omniscencia del narrador, las perspectivas contrastadas y las bruscas rupturas formales. Todo ello se combina en un modelo unico de indagacion metafisica sobre los efectos aniquiladores para el ser humano de la opresion y el aislamiento.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393976416, Paperback)

Collected in this volume are Bartleby the Scrivener, Benito Cereno, and Billy Budd—presented in the best texts available, those published during Melville's lifetime and corrected by the author.

Each text has been carefully edited and annotated for student readers.

As his writing reflects, Melville was extraordinarily well read. "Contexts" collects important sources for each novel, including writings by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Amasa Delano, and Nathaniel Hawthorne.

"Criticism" includes twenty-eight essays about the novels sure to promote classroom discussion. Contributors include Leo Marx, Elizabeth Hardwick, Frederick Busch, Robert Lowell, Herschel Parker, Carolyn L. Karcher, Thomas Mann, and Hannah Arendt.
