abstract
In this paper, I approach Melville’s first book, Typee, under the auspices of excavating Melville’s conceptions of gender in this early stage of his career. I enfold the influence of Western colonial and racial beliefs into this treatment so as to create an intersectional analysis. My approach is through macroscopic analysis in which I collect and classify a variety of semantic proclivities of Melville’s narrator so as to produce a more attuned and granular picture of Melville’s understanding of gender, as shadowed by colonialism and race.
