  • Melville’s “October Mountain”: A Mystery Solved?
    • Abstract: A persistent question in Melville studies is what, if anything, became of “October Mountain,” a sketch the author is said to have written in or around 1854 while living in Pittsfield. As Merton Sealts demonstrated more than half a century ago, the person solely responsible for our knowledge of this work is J. E. A. Smith, an acquaintance of Melville’s and one of his earliest biographers (178–82). Based on inconsistencies in Smith’s account, many scholars believe that Melville never wrote the essay at all. Others are more optimistic and hold that we may, in time, locate something very like the “October Mountain” Smith describes. I will suggest that both are correct. Based on evidence given below ...

  • Melville’s Letter to the World
    • Abstract: Scholars have long been aware of an undated bit of correspondence Herman Melville wrote to the New-York World about an unauthorized republication of Israel Potter. It reads as follows: To the Editor of the World. SIR: Permit me through your columns to make a disavowal. T. B. Peterson & Brothers, of Philadelphia, include in a late list of their publications “The Refugee; by Herman Melville.” I have never written any work by that title. In connection with that title Peterson Brothers employ my name without authority, and notwithstanding a remonstrance conveyed to them long ago. No manuscript copy of the letter exists. The sole extant version of the text is a ... Read More

  • The Financial and Legal Evidence for Two City Residences and Two Farms of
           the Melvilles
    • Abstract: Two principal city residences and two farms of the Melvilles have never been thoroughly and properly investigated financially. These are the home on Fourth Avenue in New York City, leased or occupied from 1847 to 1851, the Arrowhead farm in Berkshire County outside Pittsfield, Massachusetts, owned or occupied from 1850 to 1927, the house on East 26th Street also in New York City owned or occupied from 1854 to 1859, then 1861 to 1892, and the Gansevoort Mansion in Saratoga County, New York, owned or occupied from 1848 to 1888. Young Melville family members had earlier homes beginning with Pearl Street and continuing to Courtlandt Street, Bleecker Street, and Broadway, all in lower Manhattan. After their ... Read More

  • Surrogate’s Court Files Reveal Valuable Melville Family Documents
    • Abstract: Surrogate’s Court records in New York State have been rarely studied by Herman Melville scholars. Such records can provide significant new information on his extended family and identify new facts that reflect on his literary accomplishments. Estates of Gansevoort and Melville family members and their kin found at the County Surrogate’s Court located at Ballston Spa in Saratoga County, New York, and three adjoining counties and three downstate counties, illustrate the value of these records. Although these newly found documents do not suggest any major changes in Melville biography, they do highlight some interesting episodes in his life such as his rides to Danby in 1862 and to South Glens Falls in 1886. ...

  • In a Melville Pioneer’s Archive: Raymond Weaver’s Fragmentary
           Second Book
    • Abstract: In 1919, the then thirty-one-year-old Columbia graduate student Raymond Melbourne Weaver (1888–1948) became one of the first outside Herman Melville’s family to examine his posthumous papers. Largely from the information in the papers, Weaver wrote the biography Herman Melville: Mariner and Mystic, published two years later in 1921. The book was Weaver’s first and, in a way, Melville’s too, for no book about the author had ever made print before Weaver’s. Mariner and Mystic was thereby also the first book of the Melville revival, which so revitalized Melville’s reputation it now seems incredible that one of America’s greatest novelists—if not its greatest—was dead for thirty years and his masterpiece ...

  • Appealing to the Sensible: “Mr. Parkman’s Tour,” Gold Fever, and
           Melville’s Ambivalent Westward Approach
    • Abstract: In a December 1849 letter from London to his friend and editor Evert Duyckinck, Herman Melville vents frustration over a literary market that rewarded Redburn—in his view a “beggarly” work produced only to “[put] money into an empty purse”—but punished his “attempts [at] “anything higher” with Mardi. “What a madness & anguish it is,” he writes, “that an author can never—under no conceivable circumstances—be at all frank with his readers.” But Melville follows this condemnation by implicating himself in the truculent arena of nineteenth-century literary reception. Identifying reviewers’ treatment of Mardi with his own March 31 review of Francis Parkman’s The California and Oregon Trail, he writes: In a ... Read More

  • Digesting Moby-Dick
    • Abstract: Thus the habitual manner in which digestion is performed or affected, makes us either sad, gay, taciturn, gossiping[,] morose or melancholy, without our being able to doubt the fact, or to resist it for a moment. We resumed business; and while plying our spoons in the bowl, thinks I to myself, I wonder now if this here has any effect on the head? Does chowder affect the head? Though Ishmael’s question seems offhand, food’s effect on the mind was a topic of widespread cultural and scientific interest in Melville’s time. Antebellum science envisioned neural and alimentary structures as anatomically and functionally linked, joined by the “sympathetic nerve” (now termed the vagus nerve) ... Read More

  • American Terror: The Feeling of Thinking in Edwards, Poe, and Melville by
           Paul Hurh (review)
    • Abstract: “If you woke up to find yourself a character in a Melville fiction, chances are you would be afraid” (161). Your fear might take one of many forms, Paul Hurh explains, but it would necessarily be “touched with epistemological ambiguity,” regardless of whether cannibals or ghosts or enraged whales seemed to serve as terror’s proximate cause (161). On Hurh’s convincing account, “terror is the special feeling of objective truth,” a claim he demonstrates through precise and insightful readings of Jonathan Edwards, Edgar Allan Poe, and Herman Melville (30). American Terror thus adds an important new approach to the study of affect, although Hurh is less interested in “the fact that we feel” than “the peculiar ... Read More

  • Melville in His Own Time: A Biographical Chronicle of His Life, Drawn from
           Recollections, Interviews, and Memoirs by Family, Friends, and Associates
           ed. by Steven Olsen-Smith (review)
    • Abstract: Steven Olsen-Smith’s book renews hope that discoveries about Melville await us in years to come: not just in papers and collections we have not considered before but in tools that make new readings possible. As General Editor of Melville’s Marginalia Online, Olsen-Smith has pioneered innovative uses of imaging technology to recover lost or fugitive manuscripts. Because of his scholarship, we no longer stop at the blank wall of an erasure or at an explosion of inky lines and blots. That crossed-out comment in Evert Duyckinck’s diary? The one that says Melville is “cheerful company [three lines inked over:] without being very fluent or original and models his writing evidently a great deal on Washington ... Read More

  • Sea Narratives: Cultural Responses to the Sea, 1600–Present ed. by
           Charlotte Mathieson (review)
    • Abstract: Sailing from New Bedford to Nantucket and invigorated by a sea breeze, Ishmael celebrates what he perceives to be an unblemished ocean. “[H]ow I spurned that turnpike earth!,” he remarks, “that common highway all over dented with the marks of slavish heels and hoofs; and turned me to admire the magnanimity of the sea which will permit no records” (ch. 13). Ishmael makes quite clear that it is the resistance to “marks,” to inscription, that signals the sea’s most profound difference from the land. And it is by reading the ocean in this way that Ishmael gains the sea room he needs to write his whaling epic. While his subsequent narrative gives the lie to any claim that this element “will permit no ... Read More

  • Whales in Cincinnati
    • Abstract: Far inland, near the banks of the Ohio River, swam whales upon whales last summer. Portly and lithe, monumental and mist-shrouded, ominous and gentle, anthropomorphized and ecologized, they floated and dove through two Cincinnati art galleries. From April 22 to August 14, 2016, the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, showcased the drawings of Robert Del Tredici and Matt Kish in “Chasing the Whale and Other Endless Pursuits,” co-curated by CAC Curator Steven Matijcio and Northern Kentucky Regents Professor of English Robert K. Wallace. A few streets over, from April 23 to June 11, the Marta Hewett Gallery in the Pendleton Arts Center ran “Adrift in the Wonder World: Women Make Meaning of Moby-Dick,” ... Read More
