Description

Herman Melville's Mardi (1849) has stood the test of time as a superb allegorical fantasy, and as the third in a trilogy reflecting on Melville's experiences on the sea. Set on a fictional Pacific island, this adventure, love story, and exploration of the metaphysical sets the stage for later writers in the twentieth century who delve into the psychological.

About Author

Herman Melville (1819-1891) was born into a once-affluent family and held several jobs while writing both fiction and poetry. Many of his well-known works were based on his experiences on the water, including Typee, and Omoo, the other two works in Melville's South Seas trilogy, and Moby-Dick, his masterpiece. Often misunderstood by his contemporaries, Melville's works have garnered increasing appreciation from the 1920s onward and now enjoy a strong literary following as classic American works.
