Scott Norsworthy's Great New Discovery--An Encounter with Herman Melville in July 1846

Melville, who I am sure never wrote a stanza or a couplet in his life, is a modest, and personally not a very remarkable man, but our three poets have strong peculiarities, the younger ones especially.--from Norsworthy's great new discovery.

(The three: Halleck and the younger Saxe and Wallace.)

MELVILLE BIOGRAPHY: AN INSIDE NARRATIVE (143): Scott Norsworthy--"an Internet surfer and archive raider" --a man with an "exceptionally keen nose for the highest class of buried Melvillelan truffles."
