As the slides point out, Bartleby takes place mostly within the lawyer/narrator’s chambers, but also creates a sense of what it feels like to live through NYC’s emergence as a commercial/capitalist powerhouse. The narrator and others have to contemplate new kinds of human relationships, dangers to mental health, and notions of sympathy and necessity in the workplace. The Tombs and Trinity Church both get mentioned in the story. Are the illustrations above consistent with the feel of the city in Bartleby, or do they present a different vision of it? Write a paragraph or two explaining why one of them reflects or contradicts the mood of Bartleby. Look for visual details not generalizations. If others have commented on the images before you, don’t just repeat them or simply agree. Look to add something new that will elaborate on the previous comment or see the picture and its relationship to the text in a different way.
