Bartleby the Scrivener and other stories

The Lightning-Rod Man | The Bell Tower

Read by William Roberts


Melville’s Bartleby is a classic American short story, a strange tale of an assiduous copyist whose catch-phrase is ‘I would prefer not to’. It is joined here by two other stories from The Piazza Tales, Melville’s idiosyncratic collection: The Lightning-Rod Man and The Bell Tower.
