Herman Melville’s “Bartleby the Scrivener”
A Story Of A Man With No Story
Date: Thursday, April 7, 2022, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Location: Online, attend via Zoom
Meeting ID: 843 0108 7087
We will discuss Melville’s story, “Bartleby the Scrivener,” from many angles, but always keeping in mind that it is a piece of writing anxious about its aspirations from the start; the story and story-telling leads right into the deep shadows of American modernity at its most grim and sad.
Free and open to the community.
