Bartleby es un escribiente de Wall Street, que sirve en el despacho de un abogado y que se niega, con una suerte de humilde terquedad, a ejecutar trabajo alguno... Bartleby es mas que un artificio o un ocio de la imaginacion onirica; es, fundamentalmente, un libro triste y verdadero que nos muestra esa inutilidad esencial, que es una de las cotidianas ironias del universo. Jorge Luis Borges

Herman Melville was an American novelist, poet, and lecturer best known for his classic novel Moby-Dick, as well as for his short fiction "Bartleby, the Scrivener," and the unfinished "Billy Budd, Sailor." Educated as a teacher and later as an engineer, Melville s writing was heavily influenced by his time aboard the whaling ship Acushnet, and his month-long captivity by Typee natives on Nuka Hiva island. Although Melville experienced success early in his writing career, public indifference to his masterpiece, Moby-Dick, resulted in waning attention, and his work was almost entirely disregarded by the time of this death in 1891. Melville s work experienced a revival in the early twentieth century, and he is now considered one of the pre-eminent American writers of his time. He is also one of the most-studied novelists, and was the first writer to be collected and published by the Library of America.
