Melville Electronic Library - a critical archive


MEL's Outline of a WhaleSources room will provide links to major source works Melville consulted in the writing of his works. Our workspace, the text and image annotation tool titled Melville ReMix, will allow users to link Melville texts to identifiable segments of his source works (as well as adaptations of his works). MEL will also be interoperable with Melville's Marginalia Online, ed. Steven Olsen-Smith, Peter Norberg, and Dennis C. Marnon, which lists works from Melville's library and provides visualizations of Melville's markings and inscriptions in annotated books from the library.
