Illustration Depicting Bartleby The Scrivener Bartleby The Scrivener Illustrated Robert Browning

Bartleby The Scrivener is a fascinating piece of literature that has captivated readers for centuries. The story, penned by renowned author Herman Melville, has inspired numerous adaptations and interpretations, among which is an exquisite collection of illustrations by Robert Browning.

The Essence of Bartleby The Scrivener

Bartleby The Scrivener explores the relationship between an employer, portrayed as a lawyer, and his enigmatic employee, Bartleby. The lawyer hires Bartleby as a copyist, but soon encounters his resistance to perform any task, uttering his infamous phrase: "I would prefer not to."

The novella delves into various themes such as alienation, individuality, and the human condition. Bartleby's passive, non-conforming nature challenges the lawyer's understanding of social norms and gradually drives him to frustration and perplexity.

At the period just preceding the advent of Bartleby, I had two persons as copyists in my employment, and a promising lad as an office-boy. First, Turkey; second, Nippers; third, Ginger Nut. These may seem names, the like of which are not usually found in the Directory. In truth they were nicknames, mutually conferred upon each other by my three clerks, and were deemed expressive of their respective persons or characters.The narrator, an elderly lawyer who has a very comfortable business helping wealthy men deal with mortgages, title deeds, and bonds, relates the story of the strangest man he has ever known.The narrator already employs two scriveners, Nippers and Turkey. Nippers suffers from chronic indigestion, and Turkey is a drunk, but the office survives because in the mornings Turkey is sober even though Nippers is irritable, and in the afternoon Nippers has calmed down even though Turkey is drunk.
