Description:


"A classic of American literature [and] the pioneer in South Sea romance." 
 
(Arthur Stedman)

Typee is the first and one of the most popular of Herman Melville's novels. It's a fascinating tale of travel and adventure based on Melville's experiences as a captive on a South Pacific island in 1842 after which he became known as 'the man who lived among cannibals'.  
 Just as accessible and enjoyable for today's modern readers as it would have been when first published well over a century ago, the novel is one of the great works of American literature and continues to be widely read and studied throughout the world. 

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

 
________________________________________________
 
Herman Melville was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist, and poet. His first two books gained much attention, though they were not bestsellers, and his popularity declined precipitously only a few years later. By the time of his death he had been almost completely forgotten, but his longest novel, Moby-Dick — largely considered a failure during his lifetime, and most responsible for Melville's fall from favor with the reading public — was rediscovered in the 20th century as one of the chief literary masterpieces of both American and world literature.
