From the way the author carries on, railing against Melville, you would think ol' Herman had run over his dog or run off with his wife or something. Severin seems to be unaware of salient characteristics pertaining to Melville, like the fact he was a novelist, which means he wrote fiction. Still Timmy yowls on at Melville's lying and his plagiarizing and possibly on his dancing on sundays and what not. Tim! Wake up and smell the Folgers, dawg: Novelists make stuff up! It's their job you sanctimonious, addle-brained old goof! Try though you may, you can NEVER tear down MOBY-DICK as the greatest novel ever, EVER! "The Brendan Voyage" sucked too.
