CLAREL. A Poem and Pilgrimage in the Holy Land; by Herman Melville.—This is a long poem in four parts, viz.: Jerusalem—In the Wilderness—Mar Saba—Bethlehem, and two volumes. Think of it in these days of lightning and steam; two volumes of songs about the Holy Land and other holy things by an unknown author. Five hundred and seventy-one pages duodecimo of rhymes, and chimes, and bells, and knells.  The poem of Clarel is more than twice as long as “Paradise Lost.” New York: G. P. Putnam’s Sons.
The St. Louis Republican, June 12, 1876
