Get a book entitled Bartleby the Scrivener a Story of Wall Street, was written by Herman Melville and published by Lightning Source Incorporated. This book was released on 15 June 2011 with total pages 40. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. 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 who forsakes conventional modes because of an irresistible preoccupation with the most baffling philosophical questions." Bartleby can also be seen to represent Melville's relation to his commercial, democratic society.
