Bartleby, the Scrivener A Story Of Wall-StreetBartleby, the Scrivener A Story Of Wall-Street by Herman Melville

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I read this in college. Then I found Bartleby and his "I would prefer not to" amusing. Rereading it now and having worked near Wall Street, I was struck by the sadness and pathos of Bartleby and I had little patience with the narrator, who takes it upon himself to save Bartleby and does a terrible job of it. That said, in both cases, I felt strongly for the characters and found the novella very much worth revisiting.
