'Melville seems to promise the very stuff of existence: time, space, air. We don't so much read him as inhale him' - Geoffrey O'Brien
'There are very few stories that, on re-reading after re-reading, seem to become impossibly more perfect, but Herman Melville's eerie, aching story Bartleby, the Scrivener is one such' - Stuart Kelly
'Some of the most brilliant stories of his or any other century. From proto-existentialist Bartleby-whose dry, ironic voice of resistance chimes with our own times-to the dark ocean gothic of Benito Cereno, he surpasses any expectation' - Philip Hoare, author of Leviathan or, the Whale
