概要 The Confidence-Man: His Masquerade is a quiet but bittercastigation of mankind. Melville relentlessly reveals man's utterlack of faith in one another, and discloses the facility with whichmost men can...be duped. As the author's last major work of fiction,The Confidence-Man rivals Mark Twain's late works for gloom,pessimism, and insight.<P>As passengers aboard the steamboatFidele prepare for their trip from St. Louis to New Orleans downthe Mississippi River, they read a placard offering a reward forthe capture of an imposter from the East -- a confidence man.During the trip, the imposter assumes many disguises as he goesabout the boat cheating and duping passengers out of their money.In confrontations between the confidence man and his victims,Melville explores the incapacity of the Christian values of faith,hope, and charity to ward off evil acts. He generalizes, withsizzling insight, the Fidele passengers to represent the humanspecies.Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
Herman Melville's The Confindence-Man: His Masquerade was the tenth, last, and most perplexing book of his decade as a professional man of letters. After it he gave up his ambitious effort to write works that would be both popular and profound and turned to poetry. The book was published on April 1--the very day of its title character's April Fools' Day masquerade on a Mississippi River Steamboat.
