Herman Melville Among the MagazinesA new book, Herman Melville: Among the Magazines, by Graham Thompson is forthcoming in October from the University of Massachussetts Press. From the UMP catalogue:

In Herman Melville Graham Thompson examines the author’s magazine work in its original publication context, including stories that became classics, such as "Bartelby, the Scrivener" and "Benito Cereno," alongside lesser-known work. Using a concept he calls "embedded authorship," Thompson explores what it meant to be a magazine writer in the 1850s and discovers a new Melville enmeshed with forgotten materials, editors, writers, and literary traditions. He reveals how Melville responded to the practical demands of magazine writing with dazzling displays of innovation that reinvented magazine traditions and helped create the modern short story.
