The fruit of decades of textual scholarship, his uncollected poems, this fourth and final volume of the Library of America Melville edition gathers for the first time in one volume all of Melville’s poems: the four books of poetry published in his lifetime, and the poems from two projected volumes of poetry and prose left unfinished at his death.

Battle-pieces and aspects of the war is both a deeply philosophical work of mourning for the Civil War dead and a fascinating record of campaigns and battles and the war’s immediate aftermath. With a cast of characters to rival moby-dick, the epic poem Clarel, about a young American divinity student’s pilgrimage to the Holy Land, plumbs the profound existential and religious questions that haunted Melville throughout his life.

Whether meditating on the bloody battlefields of the civil war, or the strange relationship between the Maldive Shark and the pilot fish that glide before “his Gorgonian head, the mysteries of faith and doubt in the Holy Land, ” Melville’s verse combines precise physical detail and rich metaphysical speculation in an unorthodox style and with a compressed power uniquely his own.

Moby-Dick Dover Thrift Editions

Dover Publications #ad - Great product! New york Review of Books.

Dover Publications. Much of moby dick was inspired by the 1821 work narratives of the Wreck of the Whale-Ship Essex, which in turn inspired the 2015 movie In the Heart of the Sea, directed by Ron Howard and starring Chris Hemsworth.
