  • "Melville is primarily known as a novelist, though critics regard him as one of the most important American poets of the 19th century, in the tier just beneath Whitman and Dickinson."@en
  • "While best known for novels like his monumental Moby-Dick, Herman Melville was also an extraordinarily gifted poet. This is the most comprehensive single-volume collection of his poetry available. It features a large selection from Battle-Pieces and Aspects of the War, along with Melville's own notes and prose supplement; cantos from all four books of Clarel: A Poem and Pilgrimage in the Holy Land; selections from Melville's later books, Timoleon, John Marr and Other Sailors, and Weeds and Wildings; as well as a number of powerful uncollected poems. With a comprehensive introduction to Melville's life and later career as a poet during the Civil War and Gilded Age as well as notes on the poems and suggestions for further reading, this volume will usher in a new appreciation for Melville's poetic gifts."
