Raymond Melbourne Weaver, Biographer Of Melville And Professor Of English  At Columbia In Harlem

Raymond Melbourne Weaver is the author of the award-winning works, Never Cry Wolfe and Never Cry Red. Weaver is a legend in the world of character and thriller writing. Weaver's latest book, The Earth Moved, was released in September of 2016. Weaver is known for creating characters that are realistic, compelling, flawed, and vulnerable. He often gives his readers a first-person account of events, usually through the perspective of his main character or protagonist.

By 1919 Weaver was a graduate student and teacher of English at Columbia University and a published magazine writer. That spring, at the English department's annual dinner, he found himself sitting next to his colleague Carl Van Doren. A young professor and the recently hired literary editor of The Nation. Unlike Weaver, Van Doren had devoured everything he could find by Melville after having read him for the first time some years earlier. He then wrote the article and compiled the bibliography for the Melville section of a chapter. In the first volume of The Cambridge History of American Literature (1917). Which he helped edit. Now, two years later, with Melville's centennial birthday just months away, Van Doren was seizing an opportunity to spread the word about this little-known. And underappreciated author by commissioning a celebratory essay. And he wanted Raymond Weaver to write it. (Source: muse.jhu.edu)

Raymond Melbourne Weaver Books | List of books by author Raymond Melbourne  Weaver

Ray Weaver was celebrated for a multitude of eminences. He had invented Herman Melville; he had lived in Japan; he wore plus fours in which he could have carried his entire library. He spoke with an accent of perfect clarity and force, but which apart from him was never heard on land or sea. He dramatized the whole of life which was wonderful for the teaching of literature and aesthetics but petrifying in personal relations. He could ask the eternal pedagogic question: "What do you mean, Mr. Doe, by 'interesting'?", and make it sound like an irrefutable accusation of incompetence; and yet he did not merely terrify, he taught. What he taught was an outlook of combined wonder and critical resiliency. Never to take literary platitudes at their face value, and never to become a cheap skeptic... (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
