Mardi and a voyage thither by Herman Melville( Book )
15 editions published between 1968 and 1998 in English and held by 118 libraries worldwide
This is the extended and annotated edition including an extensive biographical annotation about the author and his life. 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. (from wikipedia.com)
