Bartleby the Scrivener A Story of Wall Street Book Description :

Accordingto Wikipedia: "Bartleby, the Scrivener: A Story of Wall Street is a novella by the American novelist Herman Melville (1819–1891). It first appeared anonymously in two parts in the November and December 1853 editions of Putnam's Magazine, and was reprinted with minor textual alterations in his The Piazza Tales in 1856. Herman Melville wrote the story as an emotional response to the fact that Pierre was published to bad reviews. Christopher Sten writes in "Bartleby, the Transcendentalist: Melville's Dead Letter to Emerson" Melville found inspiration in Ralph Waldo Emerson's essays, particularly "The Transcendentalist" which shows parallels to "Bartleby". Bartleby is a kind of clerk, a copyist, "who obstinately refuses to go on doing the sort of writing demanded of him." During the spring of 1851, Melville felt similarly about his work on Moby Dick. Thus, Bartleby can be seen to represent Melville’s frustration with his own situation as a writer, and the story itself is “about a writer that forsakes conventional modes because of an irresistible preoccupation with the most baffling philosophical questions... Though no great success at the time of publication, "Bartleby the Scrivener" is now among the most noted of American short stories."

Bartleby the Scrivener Book Description :

Every person around has a dream world which is influenced by the outer world. But when internal passions try to descend over practical tasks then characters like "Bartleby" are made. The story is rich in language and yet spare in actual action as the protagonist answers to any task as "I prefer not to." The end is very unusual making it more interesting to read.

Bartleby the Scrivener And Benito Cereno Book Description :

When a New York lawyer needs to take on another copyist, it is Bartleby who responds to his advertisement, and arrives "pallidly neat, pitiably respectable, incurably forlorn." At first a diligent employee, he soon begins to refuse work, saying only "I would prefer not to." So begins the story of Bartleby--passive to the point of absurdity yet paradoxically extremely disruptive--which rapidly turns from farce to inexplicable tragedy. Accompanying Bartleby, Benito Cereno was first serialized in 1855, and centers around a slave rebellion on board a Spanish merchant ship in 1799.

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 Silence of Bartleby Book Description :

In The Silence of Bartleby, Dan McCall proposes a new reading of Herman Melville's classic short tale "Bartleby, The Scrivener." McCall discuss in detail how "Bartleby has been read in the last half-century by practitioners of widely used critical methodologies--including source-study, psychoanalytic interpretation, and Marxist analysis. He argues that in these elaborate readings of the tale, the text itself may be lost, for critics frequently seem to be more interested in their own concerns than in Melville's. Efforts to enrich "Bartleby" may actually impoverish it, preventing us from experiencing the sense of wonder and pain that the story provides. McCall combines close readings of Melville's tale with a lively analysis of over four decades of commentary, and he includes the complete text of story itself as an appendix, encouraging us to read the story on its own terms.

Lawyer Bartleby Exchanges from Bartleby the Scrivener a Story of Wall Street Book Description :

Bartleby, the Scrivener is a sad tale that chronicles the dismal working relationship between a Wall Street property contracts lawyer and his newest hire, the inscrutable copyist Bartleby. An experienced Wall Street contracts lawyer with a small office and burgeoning business hires a new copyist, Bartleby, who starts off well by completing projects with care and efficiency. One day, when asked to do a normal task, Bartleby replies, "I would prefer not to," and this becomes Bartleby's constant refrain. The lawyer, fancying himself an adept leader, tries every which way to reach Bartleby, but ultimately fails.This case asks students to consider what leadership means when there is, finally, no right answer. The exchanges between Bartleby and the lawyer serve as a study in managerial relations, leadership strategies, emotional intelligence, and approaches to motivation. It is particularly relevant for management and leadership students seeking to grapple with the complexities of interpersonal professional relationships and is especially applicable for students who currently hold managerial or leadership positions within organizations.
