About the Author: Herman Melville

There isthan one author with this nameHerman Melville was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist, and poet His first two books gained much attention, though they were not bestsellers, and his popularity declined precipitously only a few years later By the time of his death he had been almost completely forgotten, but his longest novel, Moby Dick largely considered a failure during his lifetime, and most responsible for Melville s fall from favor with the reading public was rediscovered in the 20th century as one of the chief literary masterpieces of both American and world literature.

    This novella in which Amasa Delano, an American captain, visits a mysterious Spanish slave ship captained by Benito Cereno is my favorite of Melville s short works It is not only as profound as Bartleby and Budd but alsopleasing A first rate adventure, it features an innocent in peril, the flash of s

    Whew Gut punch I m going to attempt to tread lightly here, as any real down and dirty analysis of this story would be a worse spoiler of the plot s resolution than the Barton Fink DVD menu screen and if you haven t seen this so awesome there are no words movie and you decide to watch it on DVD, do yours

    I m still dancing around the big white whale, putting off a re read of Moby Dick by approaching it at a tangent, tackling other, shorter books by Melville Benito Cereno does a great job in showcasing the talent of the master, combining a sea tale with a moving account of human souls pushed to the limits of

    This novella takes a bit of patience to get into, but once you do, you are greatly rewarded There s suspense, there s ambiguity ambiguity galore There s much to think about, I suspect, for quite a long time after you re finished The reader probably understands what has happened long before the American captain we see

    Melville is a genius This short Gothic novella begins ploddingly and quite dull but builds in tension and horror almost imperceptibly unless you already know the story to a sudden and all encompassing tragic climax Based on a true story, it was written and left by Melville as an exposition of facts seen from all sides an
