By Herman Melville

Bartleby, el escribiente es una de las narraciones más originales y conmovedoras de l. a. historia de los angeles literatura. Melville escribió este relato a mediados del siglo xix, pero por él no parece haber pasado el tiempo. Nos cuenta l. a. historia de un odd copista que trabaja en una oficina de Wall road. Un día, de repente, deja de escribir amparándose en su famosa fórmula: «Preferiría no hacerlo».

Nadie sabe de dónde viene este escribiente, prefiere no decirlo, y su futuro es incierto pues prefiere no hacer nada que altere su situación. El abogado, que es el narrador, no sabe cómo actuar ante esta rebeldía, pero al mismo tiempo se siente atraído por tan misteriosa actitud. Su compasión hacia el escribiente, un empleado que no cumple ninguna de sus órdenes, hace de este personaje un ser tan extraño como el propio Bartleby.
El libro está ilustrado por Javier Zabala, Premio Nacional de Ilustración 2005.

«Bartleby, que facts de 1856, prefigura a Franz Kafka. Su desconcertante Protagonista es un hombre oscuro que se niega tenazmente a l. a. acción. El autor no lo explica, pero nuestra imaginación lo acepta inmediatamente y no sin mucha lástima. En realidad son dos los protagonistas; el obstinado Bartleby y el narrador que se resigna a su obstinación y acaba por encariñarse con él.»
Jorge Luis Borges

Sample text

During the next five years, while working in the family carpentry business, Whitman began to turn to poetry as a means of imposing order and meaning on his life. ”43 Only one of these poems would be included later in Leaves, “Resurgemus”: Liberty, let others despair of thee, But I will not despair of thee: Is the house shut? Is the master away? ”45 Confident in their destiny for greatness, but shaken by their failure, Whitman and Lincoln experienced a crisis that profoundly altered their exclusive qualities of their rhetoric.

It is particularly difficult to speak authoritatively about autobiography in the early-nineteenth century, for example, because genres were diversified by partially autonomous and/or overlapping subcultures—races, classes, genders, ethnicities, religions, professions, languages—within the United States, to say nothing of extensive international influences. Although the rules of a genre are perpetually contested by different groups, there are usually some rules which are generally agreed upon by all but the most experimental or marginal practitioners, particularly as a literary culture becomes more homogeneous (as was the case in the post-bellum United States).

33 Like Whitman, Lincoln sometimes publicly cast himself as a hero, another Washington, eager for martyrdom in some high place, standing alone against vast, demonic forces arrayed against holy democracy and the virtues of the Founding Fathers. Perhaps the most lurid example of Lincoln’s partisan errata, one that altered the tone of all his future political wrangling, was his satire of James Shields, the state auditor of Illinois, in 1842 (the same year that he attempted to publish a pamphlet concerning his religious views and the year of his irreverent “Temperance Address”).
