John Bryant, "Melville and Repose: The Rhetoric of Humor in the American Renaissance"
Publisher: Oxford University Press | ISBN: 0195077822 | edition 1993 | PDF | 331 pages | 23,38 mb

John Bryant's book is a strong and significant argument for the centrality of humor in Melville's novels. The purpose of Melville and Repose is dual: to ground the uses of romantic humor in Melville in sensitive readings of contemporaneous European and American writings, and to offer a definitive account of the comic as the shaping force of Melville's narrative voice throughout the major phase of his literary career.

Bartleby è il nome di un grigio, sparuto impiegato di Wall Street che, senza fornire spiegazione alcuna, man mano rinuncia al suo lavoro di copista e rimane immobile in silenzio a fissare un muro, impervio a ogni tentativo di persuasione, mite e rispettoso ma graniticamente risoluto…
