I recently went to a new doctor name of Melville. I asked him if he was related to "Herman"
Turns out he is the great great grandson of Herman Melville. I ordered several of his books and gave the to the Doc for his waiting room. Also some for me.. Marvelous writer . He is a little hard to read as he is so descriptive it's possible to get lost in the verbiage

His great great grandson has his practice in Watkinsville Georgia so I sorta forgot Herman was a New England Yankee. I ordered his book of
civil war poems and found they are all written with a "UNION" slant, Hence my not liking the poems even though they are well written

Yes we are still fighting the War Between The States down here. BUT it's all in fun

little known works of Melville. Book was in perfect condition (sans dust cover)

Read only some of the poems for a MOOC course and they are full of symbolism. I recommend it highly.

I think that one of the first questions which must be asked about the poetry of Melville, is why it is on the level of Melville's greatest prose, which is a most poetic prose at times. Why is it that Melville's real power is in those vast cathedral-tunes of sentences which sing together though they seem to shoot of in all directions, the prose of his great narratives?

It is almost as if the complexity of Melville's thought when confined to small lines , loses its power in feeling .And its rhythm too somehow goes off , and leaves us without the sense and power of the memorable.

'Great poetry' as I understand it is 'lines which resound in the mind and return to us again and again' My sense is that Melville's lines do not make it in this way.

I of course may well be wrong, but this is my feeling.
