The Enchanted Isles
Herman Melville's The Enchanted Isles is a beautiful and haunting work written following the author's tour of the Galapagos Islands. Charles Darwin, who had visited the Galapagos four years earlier, put the island's unique ecosystem at the heart of his epoch-changing work on evolutionary theory. For Melville, too, this glimpse of a land absolutely untouched by man changed his outlook on civilisation.
Originally penned as a travelogue, Melville's writings form a series of evocative and descriptive sketches. Exploring the equatorial islands' unusual heritage, he recounts their myths and stories, conjuring up the spirit of the place in astonishing detail.
