FROM THE PUBLISHER-The first volume of Melville's complete works includes three romances of the South Seas: Typee and Omoo, his exuberant accounts of the idyllic life in Polynesian island cultures, which remained his most popular works well into the 20th century, and Mardi, a combination love story, adventure, and political allegory set on a mythical Pacific island. These tales, written when Melville was in his late twenties, mark his beginnings as a writer and give early evidence of his genius and daring.
