Abstract : Liquidity and Existence: The Experience of the Land and the Sea in Herman Melville’s Thought
Liquidity and solidity, the human and the inhuman, existence and experience, philosophy and literature – these are the key concepts of the present reflections. In its most general dimension, this study aims at a revision of Herman Melville’s oeuvre in an alternative perspective from those adopted by scholars representing traditional (canonical) critical approaches. In this book, I endeavor to show Melville not only (and certainly not exclusively) as a romantic writer, but as a 19th century thinker, who evolved a unique philosophy of existence, communicable through the language of romantic literature, thus presenting him not as an author of “creative fiction,” but as a philosopher rooted in the climate of his epoch and striving to discover and communicate the truth of the world and of the human within it.
