dc.description.abstractIn this paper I have used the same chapter divisions of the text as Merrell Davis in his analysis Melvi11e's Mardi. I have not treated the novel in its entirety, but have tried to stick to the mad characters, their adventures if relevant, and ensuing searches. I left out the section of the known world in the travelogue-satire because it adds nothing to my theory and Davis proves that it was added as an afterthought. In addition I did not discuss every character in the book, only those who were mad by their own admission.en_US
