Harrison Hayford, editor. This third volume rounds out Melville's complete fiction with his dark and brilliant late works. The novels Pierre, Israel Potter, and The Confidence-Man forgo the buoyant high seas for a keen, bleak vision of life at home in America; they look forward to modernist fiction in their satire and formal experimentation. The Piazza Tales-including "Bartleby the Scrivener," "The Encantadas," and "Benito Cereno"-and uncollected stories show Melville's dazzling mastery of many styles. "Should find a place on every civilized person's bookshelf." -Los Angeles Times
