Moby Dick’s author Herman Melville wrote a short story called Bartleby, the Scrivener. This story is quite different from Moby Dick, and is an interesting story about a man who works as a clerk in a Wall Street office.
Bartleby is having a bit of a hard time and is suffering from a nervous breakdown.
He is completely unable to do his work!
He lives in his office!
Despite Bartleby’s issues, the man who runs the office continues to keep him on. This is likely out of pity for Bartleby’s situation and the hardships that the man is experiencing. Even though the whole story is a bit of a disaster for everyone, we learn to love Bartleby and his interactions with his teammates in the office.
The beauty of this story is in the relationships and connections that the team has, because even though Bartleby is a mess but he is part of their culture.
It shows how easily connections can elevate us or drag us down.
