Rest Day Read (SR-9)
Bartelby the Scrivener: A Story of Wall Street
by Herman Melville
“While of other law copyist I might write the complete life, of Bartelby nothing of that sort can be done.”
I suppose I should write the usual commentary and opinions of this classic short story. I suppose I should write how the story is a bit verbose (but, it IS Melville), how it provides a very unique look at the times and a profile of one very odd individual. BUT… I would prefer not to.
