Dr. Cynthia Wachtell, director of Stern College for Women’s S. Daniel Abraham Honors Program, recently published an essay about Herman Melville, the famed Moby Dick author, in The New York Times. Her essay focuses on two drafts of Melville’s poem “Inscription for the Slain at Frederiksburgh,” a work he composed for soldiers killed in the Civil War. Wachtell is also the author of War No More: The Antiwar Impulse in American Literature, 1861-1914.
