Abstract

The hitherto unrecorded reviews of The Confidence-Man reproduced and discussed here help to expand our understanding of Melville’s last extended work of fiction, revealing some of the complexities involved in its critical reception. Instead of merely expressing their like or dislike of the book, reviewers often got caught up in the book’s moral ambiguities.
