For Melville/Moby Dick Aficionados, Pirtle’s Pages, Episode 9

Completed Delbanco’s biography of Melville this week. It helped solidify my appreciation for Moby Dick, Billy Budd, and “Bartleby, the Scrivener,” especially.

I’m reading Moby Dick again in 2023, and like the best of the classics, it reaps massive dividends upon deep slow rereadings.

If you appreciate Moby Dick and Melville’s other masterpieces, Delbanco’s bio is worth your read.
