This book offers the first in-depth examination of the friendship between the authors. Hawthorne's influence upon Moby-Dick is weighed, as is the probability of Melville's influence upon Hawthorne. This was a friendship whose true basis--beyond an almost instantaneous mutual affinity and admiration for each other--was intellectual ideas and literary pursuits, and the conversations between the two hewed mostly to philosophical and spiritual rumination as well as to those matters that concern writers most: craft and publishing.

About the Author:

Erik Hage is an author, critic, and cultural reporter from upstate New York, where he is an associate professor of journalism, Communication, and English at the State University of New York at Cobleskill.

Review:

"This lively, readable book ... will serve students and non-specialists as a reliable guide to the time-line and evolving emotional tenor ... of the perennially fascinating Melville-Hawthorne relationship. Hage draws heavily on the extant correspondence and responsibly synthesizes the work of the two authors' many biographers ... The strength lies in its careful, concise reconstruction of the relationship as it unfolded in 1850 and 1851 and in Hage's assertion that Hawthorne exercised an immeasurable influence on Moby-Dick." --LEVIATHAN: Journal of Melville Studies (Johns Hopkins University)

"The readings of the novels, especially Moby-Dick,are excellent, and Hage's prose is graceful and metaphorical."--CHOICE magazine, June 2014

"Hage has written an engaging,acutely sensitive study of what drew Nathaniel Hawthorne and Herman Melvilletogether as literary artists and as friends. ... [his] lively and often penetrating study of thisliterary friendship contains a great deal of deft, lucidly and gracefullywritten commentary on the men's writerly personae and also about the literaryand cultural milieu of the period in which they wrote."--NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE REVIEW, Fall 2015
