About this title


Bartleby the Scrivener (1853), by Herman Melville, tells the story of a quiet, hardworking legal copyist who works in an office in the Wall Street area of New York City. One day Bartleby declines the assignment his employer gives him with the inscrutable "I would prefer not." The utterance of this remark sets off a confounding set of actions and behavior, making the unsettling character of Bartleby one of Melville's most enigmatic and unforgettable creations.

About the Author:

Herman Melville is a well-known American novelist, essayist and poet. His poetry is not as highly critically esteemed as his fiction, although some critics place him as the first modernist poet in the United States.
