A single novel, an eternal classic, established him as a founding father of American literature. Now, a century after his death, a popular surge of interest in Melville calls for Hardwick's rich analysis of the whole of Melville's works, uneven as it is, and the challenging shape of his life...a story of the creative history of an extraordinary American genius.

Hardwick's superb interpretation reveals a former whale ship deckhand whose voyages were the stuff of travel romances that seduced the public. Later, a self-described thought-diver into the truth of the human heart, Melville harbored a bitterness that knew no bounds when that same public failed to embrace his masterwork, Moby Dick.

    " I hadn't studied much of Melville, so this was my introduction to him. I feel like it's a fair take on the man, using his literature to explain so much about his very difficult life. Like Scott, I felt it was a little over-stylized, but then, so is Moby Dick! "
