Pierre or the Ambiguities – Herman Melville

Opis towaru

‚Ambiguities indeed! One long brain-muddling, soul-bewildering 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’the’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.”
