Bartleby the Scrivener, A Story of Wall Street.
"Bartleby the Scrivener: A Story of Wall Street" is a short story by Herman Melville. The story first appeared, anonymously, in Putnam's Magazine in two parts. The first part appeared in November 1853, with the conclusion published in December 1853. It was reprinted in Melville's The Piazza Tales in 1856 with minor textual alterations. The work is said to have been inspired, in part, by Melville's reading of Emerson, and some have pointed to specific parallels to Emerson's essay, "The Transcendentalist." The story has been adapted twice: once in 1970, starring Paul Scofield, and again in 2001, starring Crispin Glover.

Brilliant Story & Reading
Perfect introduction to the great mind of Melville. Much appreciated!
By the title is thought this would be dull, it was anything but!
Spoiler Alert !?! Short cameo encompassing what, to many prior to the invention of anti depression medications, was the wasting final termination of their life long struggles with brain chemical imbalance.
