1 Work in Bartleby the Scrivener - Herman Melville
“Bartleby,” said I, in the kindest tone I could assume under such exciting circumstances, “will you go home with me now—not to my office, but to my dwelling—and remain there till we can conclude upon some convenient arrangement for you at our leisure? Come, let us start now, right away.”
“I—” Bartleby paused, shifting upon his banister, “I think I would like that.”
Bartleby decides to come home with the narrator and, given food security and stable housing, does better.
