Bartleby el escribiente

Bartleby el escribiente

$12.95
More Info
Bartleby, el escribiente es un magnífico y conmovedor relato, cuya lectura resulta inquietante, divertida y perturbadora. Su protagonista, un peculiar copista judicial que trabaja en un despacho de abogados en Nueva York, decide un buen día, para sorpresa de su jefe, negarse a seguir copiando con la famosa frase «preferiría no hacerlo». Aún hoy, la motivación de Bartleby sigue siendo un exquisito misterio literario, pero la determinación y la sosegada delicadeza con la que se atreve a decir «no» hará que pase a la posteridad como un hombre que eligió la libertad. Herman Melville creó así un personaje paradigmático que influyó notablemente en autores posteriores y que se ha convertido en referente en la historia de la literatura.

Bartleby, the Scrivener is an incredibly moving story. It offers a perfect blend of fun and desolation. This classic's main character is a peculiar, overachieving clerk, working in a NY law firm. One day, to the surprise of his boss, he decides he no longer wants to keep working hard, and utters the now famous "I prefer not to." Today, Bartleby's reasoning continues to be a mystery. By responding to his superior with an emphatic "no," Bartleby was labeled a bold man that chose freedom. Herman Melville created this enigmatic character that continues to influence writers and literary genres of all scopes.
