For over seventy years, the Melville Society has been cultivating scholarship and discussion about Herman Melville, the author of Moby Dick and other famous works of literature. On its website, American literature instructors and enthusiasts will find a number of resources of interest. One key contribution to literary scholarship is Leviathan: A Journal of Melville Studies, which the society publishes three times a year. In the Publications section of this website, visitors can explore select current and past issues of Leviathan available via Project Muse. In addition, visitors will also find the complete, digitized archives of the Melville Society Extracts, a precursor to Leviathan published between 1969 and 2005. In addition to the Society's various publications, readers should be sure to check out the Research section, which contains links to a handful of helpful online resources for teaching and learning about Melville's work.
