Dana, Melville, and Justice Story: Writing the Seaman's Tale in Nineteenth-Century Law and Literature (New edition)

by

This book is an eye-opener about the way America viewed its seamen as replaceable tools of the trade. I found myself moved, saddened and outraged by its multi-layered narratives. Mudgett's book has the power to make us feel. The ambiguity of fiction, the excitement of legal argument, and the helplessness of a flogged seaman-this book is about all of these. -Stephen Curley, Regents Professor of English at Texas A&M
