  • Introduction: Reading and Teaching Clarel
    • Abstract: Critical neglect of Clarel: A Poem and Pilgrimage in the Holy Land (1876) constitutes the most perennial of tropes in discussions of Melville’s longest poem, even and especially as the poem gains more attention. By this point, we might draw back from describing Clarel as being neglected at all. It is available in two exemplary modern critical editions, Walter Bezanson’s 1960 Hendricks House edition and the 1991 Northwestern University Press/Newberry Library edition, which among its wealth of supporting material incorporates much of Bezanson’s scholarship. For use in the classroom, there is also an affordable Northwestern Newberry reader’s edition. Clarel has been a primary point of focus for no fewer than ... Read More

  • Clarel, Canto-by-Canto
    • Abstract:
      Authors of epic poems from John Milton to Joel Barlow, conscious that readers may struggle to maintain any sense of narrative stability during a long and likely discontinuous march through their verse, have often prefaced the major divisions of their poems with summative headnotes detailing the “argument” of that section. Even though, at almost eighteen thousand lines, his epic is more than twice as long as The Columbiad (1807) of Barlow, Herman Melville offers no such crutch to the readers of Clarel: A Poem and Pilgrimage in the Holy Land (1876). Melville may have wished to impose upon his readers, during their journey through the poem, a measure of the doubt and uncertainty suffered by his protagonist ... Read More

  • Alfred Kazin’s Clarel: Marginalia and Implications
    • Abstract: Alfred Kazin’s personally marked copy of Clarel became available from the bookseller of his estate at a time of renewed interest in Herman Melville’s poetry. Because Clarel had languished for decades since its limited run publication in 1876, F. O. Matthiessen felt compelled to include an excerpt from the poem in the Oxford Book of American Verse in 1950: it was, he said, “out of print and largely unread” (xiii). The 1960 publication of Walter Bezanson’s Hendricks House edition, his Yale dissertation, brought the poem back into print and spurred reading and critical usage of the poem at the time. In the introduction Bezanson wrote, “Of all Melville’s major writings Clarel has suffered most from undeserved ... Read More

  • Derwent: Revisiting Melville’s Clarel
    • Abstract: In this essay, the authors take the rather unorthodox stance that Derwent is a major philosophical voice in Herman Melville’s Clarel: A Poem and Pilgrimage in the Holy Land.1 Our intention is not to examine Derwent’s significance in the poem exhaustively, but to articulate a case why such an examination should be made in light of recent critical attention to Melville as a major “Victorian” poet in works like Wyn Kelley’s A Companion to Herman Melville (2006), Hershel Parker’s Melville: The Making of the Poet” (2007), and Sanford Marovitz’s Melville as Poet (2013). It is an old principle of the theatre that the part with the most lines is the lead. In Clarel, Melville gives the impression (it may ... Read More

  • Sentimentalism and Secularism in Pierre
    • Abstract: Published two years after Susan Warner’s wildly successful The Wide, Wide World (1850) and two years before Maria Susanna Cummins’s The Lamplighter (1854), Herman Melville’s Pierre; or, The Ambiguities (1852) participates in the sentimentalism of these two novels, but with a key difference. To the extent that Pierre focuses on faith, family, and feelings, it is thematically aligned with the tenets of sentimentalism, a genre popularized by women writers in the first half of the nineteenth century. All three novels feature domestic settings and tell the stories of young protagonists who, separated from their families, turn to God in the face of hardships. All three introduce moral guides—elders, ministers, and ... Read More

  • Moral Education in “The Paradise of Bachelors and the Tartarus of
           Maids”
    • Abstract: In chapter 96 of Moby-Dick (“The Try-Works”), we recall, Ishmael undergoes the unnerving experience of allowing the nocturnal scene of the pagan crew’s trying-out of whale blubber to lull him into a demon-haunted trance in which he momentarily reverses his direction while standing at the helm of the Pequod and, as a result, nearly capsizes the ship. The ensuing correction in his vision and orientation leads to a brief disquisition on the need to attain psychological balance in one’s perception of good and evil in the world, avoiding extremes of self-destructive obsession and naïve ignorance. As Ishmael goes on to note, this balance should not blind one to the fact that the world’s evils generally outweigh ... Read More

           Historical Imagination
    • Abstract: Participants in the “Melville and the Historical Imagination” panel at ALA 2017, from left to right: Hoang Gia Phan, John Patrick Leary, Britt Rusert, and Lenora Warren. In a 1988 conversation with C. L. R. James, Stuart Hall asked James about his scholarly and political interests in the work of Melville. Connecting literary art to history and political transformations, James responded: “For me, the same movement, social forces, instinctive strivings, that you see in the big political movements, those take a literary form with the great writer or the artist. . . . The world is changing . . . and a highly sensitive writer . . . he’s aware of something, and he writes it” (C. L .R. James Talking to Stuart ... Read More

  • All Astir
    • Abstract: I write this column still basking in the glow of the Eleventh International Melville Conference, “Melville’s Crossings,” which was held at King’s College London on June 27–30. Thank you to Janet Floyd, Wyn Kelley, and above all Ed Sugden for organizing a successful and joyous conference. The conference drew 160 participants from five continents and included three keynote addresses, roundtable discussions, concurrent sessions, tours, receptions, lunches, and a well-attended public event at the British Library, “Looking for Melville.” The British Library occasion, as the flyer noted, was “an afternoon exploring recent responses to the complex and controversial American author,” including artists, authors ...

  • Abstracts ALA 2017—Melville and Literary Influence: Reframing
           Tradition
    • Abstract: I take up Melville’s prolonged engagement with Matthew Arnold’s aesthetics. My particular interest is Melville’s enthusiastic support for the distinction Arnold draws between the critic’s purpose, as he sees it—namely, to identify the thesis advanced by a critical work, preferably as stated in the author’s own words, and to estimate the degree to which the author’s effort succeeds in throwing light upon his or her chosen subject—and criticism as it had come to be understood in Arnold’s own time: a review written with either reverence or vitriol by a person given the power to make decisions. By putting Melville into dialogue with his transatlantic contemporary, I hope to better understand how Melville conceived ... Read More

  • Books in Brief
    • Abstract: ERIC CHEYFITZThe Disinformation Age: The Collapse of Liberal Democracy in the United StatesNew York: Routledge, 2017. xii + 307 pp. Few books with chapters on Melville address the crisis conditions in the US today with the clarity and urgency of The Disinformation Age. Cheyfitz opens with George Orwell’s 1984, which he reads not as a cautionary tale but as a true story of the neoliberal present: “a corporate, effectively one-party state of omnipresent surveillance, endless war, and endemic income inequality” (6). Countering the notion that we live in the “Information Age,” Cheyfitz identifies the current era, datable from about 1980 forward, as the “Disinformation Age,” in which major media outlets ...

  • Surviving the Essex: The Afterlife of America’s Most Storied Shipwreck
           by David O. Dowling, and: The Essex and the Whale: Melville’s Leviathan
           Library and the Birth of Moby-Dick ed. by R. D. Madison (review)
    • Abstract: “If it was never new, and it never gets old, then it’s a folk song,” declares the titular down-on-his-luck singer in Ethan and Joel Coen’s film, Inside Llewyn Davis. Director Ron Howard might have adapted the Coen brothers’ line for In the Heart of the Sea, his 2015 recounting of the 1820 loss of the whaleship Essex by ending it, “ . . . then it’s a sea story.” The tale of the Essex is a spectacular sea story about disaster, shipwreck, and cannibalism, one that became a literary event almost before it had ceased being a maritime one. But lurid and compelling as it was, the tale was never unique. Recognizing that the story of the Essex was a prime, saleable representative of the shipwreck genre, the ship’s ... Read More
