Finally Bartley is introduced.

"I can see that figure now - pallidly neat, pitiable respectable, incurably forlorn! I was Bartleby." (p. 5)

For a story that is named after the character it too a while for him to be introduced. And right from the start you feel badly for him. Melville's description of him is so depressing you can only imagine what is to follow. Which so far hasn't made much sense.

Hopefully it will make some more sense once I finish it.
