Publisher's Summary

If you don't know Melville's letters to Hawthorne, you don't know Melville. These letters are full of passion, humor, doubt, and spiritual yearning and offer an intimate view of Melville's personality. Lyrical and effusive, they are literary works in themselves.

This correspondence has been out of print for decades, and even when it was in print it appeared in scholarly volumes of Melville's complete correspondence, aimed at the academy.

The Divine Magnet will provide the general literary public as well as the college classroom with a reliable and beautifully produced volume of Melville's letters to Hawthorne along with supplemental material highlighting the relationship between these luminaries of American letters.

What the Critics Say

"Herman Melville had met Nathaniel Hawthorne in 1850 and recognized him instantly as a literary soulmate. Melville’s letters...show a rapport and intimacy that go beyond simple mutual respect." (Publishers Weekly)
