Herman Melville's Complete Shorter Fiction (Everyman's Library (Cloth))

  Herman Melville (1819-91) brought as much genius to the smaller-scale literary forms as he did to the full-blown novel: his poems and the short stories and novellas collected in this volume reveal a deftness and a delicacy of touch that is in some ways even more impressive than the massive, tectonic passions of Moby-Dick. In a story like "Bartleby, the Scrivener" -- one of the very few perfect representatives of the form in the English language -- he displayed an unflinching precision and insight and empathy in his depiction of the drastically alienated inner life of the title character. In "Benito Cereno," he addressed the great racial dilemmas of the nineteenth century with a profound, almost surreal imaginative clarity. And in Billy, Budd, Sailor, the masterpiece of his last years, he fused the knowledge and craft gained from a lifetime's magnificent work into a pure, stark, flawlessly composed tale of innocence betrayed and destroyed. Melville is justly honored for the epic sweep of his mind, but his lyricism, his skill in rendering the minute, the particular, the local, was equally sublime. (Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)
हरमन मेलविले (18 1 9-9 1) ने छोटे पैमाने पर साहित्यिक रूपों के रूप में उतना प्रतिभा लाया क्योंकि उन्होंने पूर्ण उग्र उपन्यास के साथ किया था: उनकी कविताओं और लघु कथाओं और उपन्यासों ने इस खंड में एकत्रित किया है जो एक बेईमानी और स्पर्श की एक स्वादिष्टता प्रकट करता है कुछ तरीकों से मोबी-डिक के विशाल, टेक्टोनिक जुनून से भी अधिक प्रभावशाली। "जर्मनी, स्क्रिप्वेनर" जैसी एक कहानी में - अंग्रेजी भाषा में रूप के बहुत ही कम सही प्रतिनिधियों में से एक - उन्होंने शीर्षक चरित्र के बड़े पैमाने पर विचलित आंतरिक जीवन के चित्रण में एक निर्विवाद सटीकता और अंतर्दृष्टि और सहानुभूति प्रदर्शित की । "बेनिटो सेरेनो" में, उन्होंने उन्नीसवीं शताब्दी के महान नस्लीय दुविधाओं को एक गहन, लगभग अति कल्पनाशील स्पष्टता के साथ संबोधित किया। और बिली में, बिल्ल, नाविक, अपने पिछले वर्षों की उत्कृष्ट कृति में, उन्होंने जीवन भर के शानदार काम से प्राप्त ज्ञान और शिल्प को निर्दोषता की एक शुद्ध, कठोर, निर्दोष रूप से बनाई गई कहानी में धोखा दिया और नष्ट कर दिया। मेलविले को अपने दिमाग की महाकाव्य स्वीप के लिए सम्मानित किया गया है, लेकिन उनके गीतवाद, मिनट को प्रस्तुत करने में उनका कौशल, विशेष, स्थानीय, समान रूप से शानदार था। (बुक जैकेट स्थिति: जैकेट)
