Herman Melville - Galapagos Islands Landscapes in Herman Melville's The Encantadas or Enchanted Isles from The Piazza Tales, Illustrated with scenic photographs from Ecuador's Galapagos Archipelago made famous by Charles Darwin. PDF

PDF Tour the Galapagos Islands with world-famous author Herman Melville!

Melville’s first glimpse of the Galapagos Islands came as a young seaman on the whaler “Acushnet” out of New Bedford, Massachusetts. Years later, after the failure of his novel “Moby-Dick,” he tried to regain his lost popularity with the reading public by writing a series ten of magazine sketches recalling this visit to the Galapagos Islands. He called his series “The Encantadas or The Enchanted Isles.”

In this first sketch, “The Isles at Large,” Melville explores the landscape of this volcanic archipelago as an introduction to its unique and exotic world.

This selection from Lynn Michelsohn’s book, In the Galapagos Islands with Herman Melville includes:

~ “Sketch First. The Isles at Large,” the first of Melville’s ten sketches

~ Moses Michelsohn’s striking color photographs illustrating Melville’s text.

~ Lynn Michelsohn’s short introduction to the work

~ a Bonus Section of Moses Michelsohn’s scenic Galapagos Island landscape photographs not included in the longer work.

We hope you enjoy your visit to the Galapagos Islands!
