Pierre: Or, the Ambiguities - new book

ISBN: 9780140434842

ID: 689244940

´´Ambiguities indeed! One long brain-muddling, soulbewildering ambiguity (to borrow Mr. Melville´s style), like Melchisedeck without beginning or end - a labyrinth without a clue - an Irish bog without so much as a Jack o´ th´-lantern to guide the wanderer´s footsteps - the dream of a distempered stomach, disordered by a hasty supper on half-cooked pork chops´´. So judged the New York Herald when Pierre was first published in 1852, with most contemporary reviewers joining in the general condemnation: ´´a dead failure´´, ´´this crazy rigmarole´´, and ´´a literary mare´s nest´´. Latter-day critics have recognized in the story of Melville´s idealistic young hero a corrosive satire of the sentimental-Gothic novel, and a revolutionary foray into modernist literary techniques. As William Spengemann writes in his introduction to this edition, ´´For anyone who, being aware of the culture of modernity, is curious about its origins, Pierre ranks with Coleridge´s ´Rime of the Ancient Mariner, ´ Carlyle´s Sartor Resartus, Hawthorne´s Scarlet Letter, and the poems of Emily Dickinson as one of the privileged places where the dead past can be seen giving way inexorably to the living present´´. A novel about an idealist crushed in his attempts to pursue the ways of heaven upon earth. The novel was viewed as a failure by contemporary reviewers, but is now seen as an early foray into modernist literary techniques.
