Summary
"Herman Melville's passion for things astronomical is visible throughout his writings. Brett Zimmerman places Melville's many astronomical citations within the thematic context of the works in which they appear and within the larger cultural and historical context of nineteenth-century studies. In addition he provides a comprehensive catalogue of every reference to astronomy, its practitioners, and related topics in Melville's works."--BOOK JACKET. "Herman Melville: Stargazer will be of great interest to scholars and students of American literature, as well as to those interested in the relationship between science and literature."--BOOK JACKET
