                         Themes and Imagery in Herman Melville’s Novel Omoo

Abstract:                 

Omoo is a less well integrated book than Typee, and Melville’s narrator, whom I shall call “the rover,” is and is not the Tommo of Typee. Significantly, the Melvillean rover returns to civilization by way of Tahiti, a kind of “halfway house” on the road back to civilization. Omoo describes directly the impact of Christian civilization upon the primitive culture of the island, which has already been destroyed by foreign invasion and missionary activity. While on the surface the novel is picaresque and often broadly comic, the criticisms of missionary influence relentlessly and systematically expose the evils of colonial policy.

 

Keywords: Civilization, Culture, innocence, imagery.
