Parker and Higgins reveal that Melville drastically altered the end of the novel after a troubling meeting with his publisher and editor about the perceived failure of Moby-Dick. Melville re-wrote Pierre's protagonist as a writer and used the novel to attack the publishing industry.

In this study, Hershel Parker shows that, on the contrary, Melville was enthralled by poetry for much of his life and wrote almost nothing else for a third of a century." "Parker demonstrates that from childhood Melville was steeped in British poetry from Spenser to Byron, including dozens of poets now little read even by specialists. In 1849 Melville's ecstatic study of Shakespeare renewed his love of poetry just as he was becoming a great prose writer. Rereading Milton and Spenser, he experienced them with such recharged intensity that he became passionately immersed in Wordsworth, Tennyson, the Brownings, and other modern poets as well. Parker explores the author's marginalia, much of it previously unknown, to elucidate Melville's shrewd, skeptical engagement with British poetry and with commentaries by poets, aestheticians, art historians, and the great Scottish reviewers." "Revealed here is an unknown Melville, the autodidact who made himself a poet and who brilliantly constructed a personal aesthetic credo. Dispelling baseless claims that Melville had a quarrel with fiction after Moby-Dick (or Pierre) and that he did not, in 1860, complete a book he called Poems, Parker offers new evidence of the full trajectory of Melville's career in all its glory and frustration."--BOOK JACKET+-+09197656356044ocn011362604book19840.63Parker, HershelFlawed texts and verbal icons : literary authority in American fictionCriticism, interpretation, etc4744ocn025873726book19820.50Critical essays on Herman Melville's Moby DickCriticism, interpretation, etc46212ocn048139492file19680.47Melville, HermanOmoo; a narrative of adventures in the South SeasFictionAdventure stories, American"Melville's second book, Omoo, begins where his first book, Typee, leaves off. As the author described the book, "It embraces adventures in the South Seas (of a totally different character from 'Typee') and includes an eventful cruise in an English Colonial Whaleman (a Sydney Ship) and a comical residence on the island of Tahiti." The popular success of Melville's first book encouraged him to write this sequel, hoping it would be "a fitting successor." Typee describes Polynesian life in its "primitive" state, while Omoo represents it as affected by non-native influences, including the sophisticated lifestyle of sailors in the Pacific." "Walt Whitman found Omoo "the most readable sort of reading" and praised its "good-natured style." But many reviewers doubted Melville's veracity, and some objected to his "raciness" and "indecencies." Some also denounced his criticism of missionary endeavors, for his attacks on missionaries were more polemical than those undertaken in the earlier book. Over the years, however, readers have been charmed by both."--Jacket+-+20126656354577ocn000279698book19840.63Melville, HermanThe writings+-+20785656354553ocn009393926book19830.66Critical essays on Herman Melville's Pierre, or, The ambiguitiesCriticism, interpretation, etc4328ocn049414874file19700.37Melville, HermanWhite-jacket : or, The world in a man-of-warNaval historyFictionSea storiesLong before penning Moby-Dick, which many regard as the quintessential American novel, author Herman Melville was captivated by life on the open sea.

Mardi is Melville's first pure fiction work (while featuring fictional narrators, his previous novels were heavily autobiographical). It details (much like Typee and Omoo) the travelings of an American sailor who abandons his whaling vessel to explore the South Pacific. Unlike the first two, however, Mardi is highly philosophical and said to be the first work to show Melville's true potential. The tale begins as a simple narrative, but quickly focuses upon discourse between the main characters and their interactions with the different symbolic countries they encounter. While not as cohesive or lengthy as Moby-Dick, it shares a similar writing style as well as many of the same themes.
