Bartleby The Scrivener, By Herman Melville

Story in full:

Trailer to the slightly cringey “Bartleby” film starring a young Crispin Glover in the titular role:

Note: this story, and the narration thereof, exists in the Public Domain, and thus no restrictions are placed on how this recording is reproduced or otherwise shared. Other narrations of this classic story exist, also in the public domain, and the Host humbly submits his own narration as a complement to those existing already. Bartleby is as affecting a character in the 21st century, as we was at the time of his creation, in the middle of the 19th.
