    Bestow them, ye who are now made parties to this indissoluble league The resulting work was finally shipped to Bentley on September 10, although it received many positive reviews, Melvilles anatomies book sold poorly and accelerated the decline of Melville's literary reputation. In all other aspects, the book is sad stuff, dull and dreary, or ridiculous. Herman Melville's last and best and most wildly imaginative story, The Whale Hayford, ever a stickler, writes that Leyda was wrong on both counts. The sheer mass of the novel is commensurate with its high purpose.

    Moby-Dick derives its meaning and its greatness not from its Melvilles anatomies book volume, but rather from its robust study of the human imagination and the titanic monster that is its subject. He has not only deftly avoided their dangers, but made them an element of great power. Melville has to thank himself only if his horrors and his heroics are flung aside by the general reader, as so much trash belonging to the worst school of Bedlam literature -- since he seems not so much unable to learn as disdainful of learning the craft of an artist. And once returned to America, Greene always lived elsewhere—upstate New York, Ohio, Chicago—and so could hardly have assuaged whatever longings Melville may have had.

Good and bad are but names very readily transferable to this or that; the only right is what is after my constitution, the only wrong what is against it. Finally, too, the Melvilles anatomies book of John Marr in the late collection John Marr and Other Sailors finds himself unable to make "sympathetic communion" with others, who reject him. Then their fields spin themselves green carpets; snow and ice are not in all the land; then a million strange, bright, fragrant things powder that sward with perfumes; and high majestic beings, dumb and grand, stand up with outstretched arms, and hold their green canopies over merry angels--men and women--who love and wed, and sleep and dream, beneath the approving glances of their visible god and goddess, glad-hearted sun, and pensive moon! The trio Pierre, Isabel, and Delly find rooms in a former church converted to apartments, the Church of the Apostles, now populated by impecunious artists, writers, spiritualistsand philosophers, including the mysterious Plinlimmon.
