Herman Melville and the TranscendentalistsAs the editors of our anthology explain, “Melville rejected Emerson’s optimism,” and even satirically wrote of him as a “philosophical con man.” And over the years, readers and critics have often described Melville’s fiction as anti-transcendental dark romance. For example, in Melville’s “Bartleby, The Scrivener” Bartleby, the main character, one day decides to simply stop working for the lawyer who is his boss. “I would prefer not to” becomes Bartleby’s mantra whenever he is asked to complete a task. Arguably, he is being true to himself, a quality which Ralph Waldo Emerson advocated. The problem is, though, that Bartleby cannot survive by being true to himself only. For this assignment you will analyze Melville’s “Bartleby, the Scrivener” (1469) using Emerson’s “Self-Reliance” (236) as a foundation.Format: Introduction, paragraph 1: transcendentalism in both works, Paragraph 2: Compare and Contrast on both works, P3,P4, C
