Herman Melville 『Moby-Dick』 (Bantam Classic)

「Melville retreated into depression and inactivity, the long twilight of his years witnessing a steady drying up of his inspiration and energies and it was left to the twentieth century to give him recognition as having written the greatest of all American novels.」
(Charles Child Walcutt 「Herman Melville: A Biographical Note」 より)

「I. Loomings」より:

「CALL me Ishmael. Some years ago - never mind how long precisely - having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen, and regulating the circulation. Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off - then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can. This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship.」



「There is the grand truth about Nathaniel Hawthorne. He says NO! in thunder; but the Devil himself cannot make him say *yes*. For all men who say *yes*, lie; and all men who say *no*, - why, they are in the happy condition of judicious, unincumbered travellers in Europe; they cross the frontiers into Eternity with nothing but a carpet-bag, - that is to say, the Ego. Whereas those *yes*-gentry, never get through the Custom House. 」


「The divine magnet is on you, and my magnet responds. Which is the biggest? A foolish question - they are *One*.」
