If Dickens was once nineteenth-century London personified, Herman Melville was once the essential American. With a historian’s point of view and a critic’s perception, award-winning writer Andrew Delbanco marvelously demonstrates that Melville was once greatly a guy of his period and that he recorded — in his books, letters, and marginalia; and in conversations with pals like Nathaniel Hawthorne and along with his literary cronies in long island — an incomparable bankruptcy of yankee background. From the bawdy storytelling of Typee to the religious preoccupations build up to and beyond Moby Dick, Delbanco brilliantly illuminates Melville’s existence and paintings, and his an important position as a guy of yankee letters.
