There is no record of anything Herman Melville (1819-1891) may have thought or said about "Bartleby the Scrivener. A Story of Wall-Street", his single most famous tale, published just over 150 years ago today. It is actually for a whole gamut of reasons that the text is unlikely to ever yield an interpretive consensus gentium, the insights of such magisterial figures as F.O. Matthiessen, Ralph Ellison, Jacques Derrida, Giorgio Agamben, or Slavoj Zizek notwithstanding. The volume adds to the nearly global `Bartleby Industry' with contributions by Andrzej Kopcewicz (Poznan), Joseph Kuhn (Poznan), Marek Paryz (Warsaw), Tadeusz Rachwal (Warsaw), Janusz Semrau (Poznan), Tadeusz Slawek (Katowice), and Marek Wilczynski (Gdansk). Written independently over a period of time, the readings range from circumferentially intertextual to intra-textually semiotic-medical to post-psychoanalytical to post-post-modern to re-de-constructive to neo-classical-symbolic to jurisprudential-allegorical.
