dc.description.abstractThis paper grew out of my fascination with the multi-disguised tricksters of Melville's The Confidence Man. In the novel a Mississippi riverboat is the setting for a series of episodes in which various travellers are cheated by a number of men who hide their evil nature behind a mask of benevolence and honesty.en_US
