Melville's Sources

Front Cover
Northwestern University Press, 1987 - Literary Criticism - 213 pages
An invaluable reference for the researcher, Mary K. Bercaw's Melville's Sources is a checklist, keyed to Melville's works, of every source suggested by scholars to have been used by Melville. In contrast to similar references, this volume relies not only on evidence of possession by the author, but on such so-called internal evidence as direct references and parallel passages. For each source listed, Bercaw cites the work or works in which Melville is thought to have used it and every reviewer, critic, or scholar who has made the attribution.
