  • "Peering Across the Plaza": The Shrouded Women of "Benito Cereno"
    • Abstract: Early in "Benito Cereno," Herman Melville deploys the freighted image of the "saya-y-manta" (47), a concealing style of dress popular with elite women in the Viceroyalty of Peru during the colonial period. This largely unconsidered figure signals a range of meanings and associations that highlight the global referents that adhered to particular bodies, images, and texts in the nineteenth century. With the "saya-y-manta" and numerous allusions to its presence, Melville invokes epistemological projects of the Enlightenment that sought to consolidate visualizable categories of race and gender. In citing the highly feminine fashion, Melville also underscores the role of women in the tale. Women, both those present in ... Read More

  • Herman Melville in Iran: Translations, Interpretations, and Receptions
    • Abstract: Herman Melville, one of the seminal American authors, is best known in Iran for the novel Moby-Dick, the novella Billy Budd, Sailor, and the short story "Bartleby, the Scrivener." Melville's work won recognition in the Iranian public arena through translation during 1950s and 1960s, well after the so called Melville Revival in the early twentieth century. Melville's work reached Iranian academic circles when the English departments in Iran began to examine literary works in their original languages at the same time that translations became available. For academics, the translations were not the main interest, and Persian students, who were mainly instructed by foreign professors, followed the customary approaches ... Read More

    • Abstract: According to Benjamin Doty ("Digesting Moby-Dick," Leviathan 19.1 [Oct. 2017]), the alimentary content in Moby Dick indicates that Melville and his contemporaries attended to the reciprocal relationship between the mind and body. As medical scientists discovered that the brain "was no longer considered to be in charge of the nervous system but rather a part of it," and existed also in "nervous sympathy" with its "cultural and natural environment," nineteenth-century theories of medicine established that good mental health depended on good diet (88–89). The brain depends on the belly, as well as what's in it. Doty cites Melville's incorporation of medical-scientific discourse to argue that the author of Moby Dick ... Read More

           Dick by Maxianne Berger, and: Or, The Ambiguities by Karen Weiser (review)
           
    • Abstract: It is a commonplace of Melville studies to acknowledge that his work was often dismissed and disparaged by his nineteenth-century contemporaries. Twentieth- and twenty-first-century Melville readers worldwide, however, have been eager to make up for lost time with abundant literary critical studies and aesthetic creations, including novels, editorials, cartoons, paintings, sculptures, comics, dances, plays, films, television productions, songs, and operas. Yet, curiously, until recently Melville's writings have sparked the imagination of relatively few poets.While Robert Buchanan's 1885 lyrical tribute to Melville as "a sea-compelling man" in "Socrates in Camden, with a Look Round," brought him early poetic praise ...

  • Melville: A Novel by Jean Giono (review)
    • Abstract: Following the British Melville revival in the early 1920s, countless readers across Europe discovered Melville for themselves. Jean Giono, for one, came across Moby-Dick around 1930. By the time he encountered Melville, Giono had already established a reputation as an author of challenging novels that read like prose poems. He recognized the greatness of MobyDick and frequently encountered the American sailor-poet in its pages. As he says in his preface to Melville: A Novel or, to use the original French title, Pour saluer Melville:For at least five or six years, Melville's book was my foreign companion. I took it with me regularly on my hikes across the hills. As soon as I entered those vast, wavelike but ... Read More

  • The Great Floodgates of the Wonderworld: A Memoir by Justin Hocking, and:
           Season on the Line: An Epic Love Letter to the American Theater by Shawn
           Pfautsch (review)
    • Abstract: Creative appropriations and adaptations of Melville's works can function as a kind of pluralistic, democratic, culturally contested space. Besides keeping the ninenteenth-century author in global circulation, they open up Melville to fresh interpretations. As Samuel Otter suggests in his essay "Leviathanic Revelations," "these representations of Melville's texts … help us to see the book anew."Two recent creative prose engagements with Moby-Dick are Justin Hocking's The Great Floodgates of the Wonderworld: A Memoir and Shawn Pfautsch's Season on the Line: An Epic Love Letter to the American Theater, both of which can prompt us to reconsider facets of Melville's epic novel. Distinct in form and theme, these two ... Read More

    • Abstract: The Eleventh International Melville Conference, "Melville's Crossings," held at King's College London on June 27–30, 2017, was a resounding success.

In this issue of Leviathan, we are honored to include the plenary addresses of Hester Blum and Anna Brickhouse. We also present President Arimichi Makino's address, five conference reports, and a photo gallery.

  • Melville in the Arctic
    • Abstract: In 1845, British naval captain Sir John Franklin launched a large Northwest Passage expedition aboard the ships Erebus and Terror. When there had been no notice of the 129 men on the voyage after several years, a search began. And not just one search: at least forty rescue and recovery missions sought evidence of the Franklin expedition's baffling terminus within the first fifteen years of their disappearance alone. Sympathy for Franklin and his men compelled some unlikely individuals to head for the Far North; Philadelphia surgeons and Cincinnati newspapermen alike found common cause in seeking news of the missing British expedition. Broad public curiosity kept interest in the Erebus and Terror alive, and ... Read More

  • Earthquake and Whale
    • Abstract: "Whale and Earthquake in Lisbon," from The Facsimile of the Ausberg Manuscript of The Book of Miracles, from the Collection of Mickey Cartin (mid-16th-century). Image courtesy of The Cartin Collection.This lecture comes from my work on a book in progress currently titled Earthquake Aesthetics: Catastrophe and the Forms of Critique. The project is concerned with catastrophe over the long history of the Americas as both a historical force and a hermeneutic, a figure for disparate modes of critique. The book is structured around particular moments and kinds of catastrophe, from disastrous fire in nineteenth-century Haiti to twenty-first-century flooding in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Earthquake also provides ... Read More

  • Address for the London Conference
    • Abstract: Arimichi Makino, President of The Melville Society, delivering his address at the Eleventh International Melville Society Conference with Wyn Kelley at his side. Photo courtesy of Ikuno Saiki.First I would like to express sincere condolences to the victims of the London terrorist attacks. It must be a very hard time for the London conference directors to concentrate their efforts on organizing the program. We had a similar difficulty at the Tokyo conference in 2015. It was the time after the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear power plant caused by a big earthquake. We managed, however, to accomplish our goal and hold the conference. Thus we feel strong solidarity with the organizers of the London conference.I would ... Read More

  • Between the Whaler and Me
    • Abstract: James Noel. Photo courtesy of Evan Jones.During my life as a postgraduate, there was a question that I was continuously asked: Why Melville' Sometimes, a handful of fellow postgrads would ask me this question solely to discover if I had fallen for Melville's work in the same way that they had. Usually, when this happened, we would find ourselves, two hours later in a café near New Cross train station, taking turns to share magical moments in Melville's work that stayed with us and never left. Nonetheless, it was not only postgrads who asked this question. Family members, friends, and acquaintances whom I would run into at the leisure center would also inquire about my choice, often bewildered by my decision to ... Read More

  • We Look Deep Down and Yet Believe
    • Abstract: Caitlin Smith Oyekole. Photo courtesy of Oyekola Oyekole.At the Eleventh Annual International Melville Society Conference, I saw a new interest in the kinds of community that spring up around Melville's works. The "Looking for Melville" event at the British Library highlighted three different kinds of ongoing engagement with Melville. John Bryant's biography, which focused on transatlantic slavery's impact on Melville's life and literature, demonstrated the constant discovery of Melville's contexts. Caroline Hack, Philip Hoare, Shelley Piasecka, and Michael Hall showed how Melville's concepts, characters, and literary style continue reverberating through artistic production, inspiring new adaptations, art forms ...

  • In Melville's Mother Land
    • Abstract: Søren Frank. Photo courtesy of Kim Rune.Most interesting spot I have seen in England. Made tour of all colleges. It was here I first confessed with gratitude my mother land, & hailed her with pride.The Eleventh International Melville Conference, "Melville's Crossings," at King's College in London (June 2017) was my second Melville conference, the first being in Tokyo in 2015. This time around I was a little more relaxed. Not only because London was more familiar to me than Tokyo, a city (and country) that I had never been to before the Melville conference, but also, and mostly, because I knew from Tokyo that Melvilleans were in fact, all things considered, very friendly people. In London, one of the first people I ... Read More

  • In the Shadow of No Tower: Melville in London
    • Abstract: Kathryn Mudgett. Photo courtesy of Michele Mudgett.Of all the images in my memory of the Eleventh International Melville Conference in London, one stands out: the charred Grenfell Tower rising to the south of the A40 as we headed by bus toward Oxford University for the closing banquet. Its lowest floors appeared unscathed, with every one from the fourth up to the twenty-fourth floor of the public housing apartments bearing the blackened scars of the rampaging fire where at least seventy people died, some of whom may never be found. What would Melville have made of this tragedy (or crime)' Melville, the writer who confronts "unspeakable things unspoken" (in Toni Morrison's words), never shies from interrogating ... Read More

  • Melville's London—and Ours
    • Abstract: Wyn Kelley. Photo courtesy of David Shaerf.As Edward Sugden's and Janet Floyd's "sleeping-partner" (the Melville Society liaison) in their splendid production of the Melville Society Conference at Kings College, London (KCL), I enjoyed extraordinary backstage access. The Society liaison participates in planning, reads paper abstracts, supports graduate students and staff, and circles around the edges of the conference. I helped out at the registration table, filled in where needed, and—like Flask—ate last.Also, I got to see London.Other conference-goers will sing their praises of the conference's many delights: superb keynote addresses (two of which are reprinted in this issue) and exciting papers (some to appear ...
