Herman Melville’s brilliant works remain vital and provocative for their dark ebullience and visionary power. The sweep of his writings- encompassing ferocious social satire, agonized reflection, and formal experimentation-is represented in this comprehensive edition. Here are Melville’s masterpieces: Moby-Dick in its entirety; Billy Budd; “Bartleby, The Scrivener”; “The Encantadas, or Enchanted Isles”; the essay “Hawthorne and His Mosses”; and 21 poems, including “The House-top”, an anguished response to the New York draft riots.
