Herman Melville: Arguably America’s Most Unread, at Times Unreadable, Literary Genius with Joan Baum

Thursday May 9, 2019
11:00 AM until 12:00 PM


2019 marks the bicentennial of Herman Melville's birth. Critic and scholar Joan Baum will celebrate his legacy by exploring some of Melville’s best known work, including Moby Dick, Bartleby the Scrivener, Billy Budd, and less familiar fiction, such as Benito Cereno, and The Confidence Man, his last novel. She will focus on Melville’s diction and syntax as well as his content and heady ideas, and explore why we are still talking about Herman Melville and his Great White Whale after almost 200 years.
