Bartleby, the Scrivener: A Story of Wall Street" is a short story by the American writer Herman Melville (1819-1891). It first appeared anonymously in two parts in the November and December 1853 editions of Putnam's Magazine, and was reprinted with minor textual alterations in his The Piazza Tales in 1856. About the Author: HERMAN MELVILLE (1819-1891) was born in New York City. Family hardships forced him to leave school for various occupations, including shipping as a cabin boy to Liverpool in 1839--a voyage that sparked his love for the sea. A shrewd social critic and philosopher in his fiction, he is considered an outstanding writer of the sea and a great stylist who mastered both realistic narrative and a rich, rhythmical prose. He is best known for his novel Moby-Dick and the posthumously published novella Billy Budd.

Autorenporträt
Herman Melville (1819-91) stammte aus einer verarmten New Yorker Familie. Er ging früh zur See und verdingte sich als Matrose, unter anderem auch auf Walfängern. Seine Reisen führten ihn bis in die Südsee. 1844 kehrte er in die USA zurück, lebte als freier Schriftsteller und war von 1866-85 als Zollinspektor in New York tätig. Der Romancier und Autor von Kurzgeschichten und Lyrik gilt als einer der bedeutendsten amerikanischen Schriftsteller. Sein Meisterwerk 'Moby Dick' zählt zu den Klassikern der Weltliteratur.
Rezensionen
"I wanted them all, even those I'd already read." -Ron Rosenbaum, The New York Observer "Small wonders." -Time Out London "[F]irst-rate...astutely selected and attractively packaged...indisputably great works." -Adam Begley, The New York Observer "I've always been haunted by Bartleby, the proto-slacker. But it's the handsomely minimalist cover of the Melville House edition that gets me here, one of many in the small publisher's fine 'Art of the Novella' series." -The New Yorker "The Art of the Novella series is sort of an anti-Kindle. What these singular, distinctive titles celebrate is book-ness. They're slim enough to be portable but showy enough to be conspicuously consumed-tiny little objects that demand to be loved for the commodities they are." -KQED (NPR San Francisco) "Some like it short, and if you're one of them, Melville House, an independent publisher based in Brooklyn, has a line of books for you... elegant-looking paperback editions ...a good read in a small package." -The Wall Street Journal
