Typee is a fast-moving adventure tale, an autobiographical account of the author's Polynesian stay, an examination of the nature of good and evil, and a frank exploration of sensuality and exotic ritual.

《泰比》(1846)以作者自己的航海经历为素材,描写了南太平洋岛屿上的土人生活和美国青年在这些岛屿上的历险。《泰皮》是一篇用第一人称自述的记载,写的是一个美国青年的冒险。他和同伴托比私自离船出走。二人爬过一座大山,进入山谷,碰到一些吃人的泰皮人。托比逃脱了,他本人被迫与土人同住。使他吃惊和安慰的是,土人待他很好。这个故事的结尾,写他从野人处逃走,野人一路追他追到海里,一条大船上放下小艇把他救了起来。这个简单故事的要点,在于文明社会的邪恶与野蛮人的美德之间的对照。

Typee: A Peep at Polynesian Life is the first book by American writer Herman Melville, published first in London, then New York, in 1846. Considered a classic in travel and adventure literature, the narrative is based on the author's actual experiences as a captive on the island Nuku Hiva in the South Pacific Marquesas Islands in 1842, but is liberally supplemented with imaginative reconstruction and adaptation of material from other books. The title is from the name of a valley there called Tai Pi Vai. Typee was Melville's most popular work during his lifetime, and made him notorious as the "man who lived among the cannibals".

赫尔曼·梅尔维尔(1819-1891),19世纪美国最伟大的小说家、散文家和诗人之一,与纳撒尼尔·霍桑齐名,梅尔维尔身前没有引起应有的重视,在23世纪二十年代声名鹊起,被普遍认为是美国文学的巅峰人物之一。 英国作家毛姆认为他的《白鲸》是世界十大文学名著之一,其文学史地位更在马克·吐温等人之上。梅尔维尔也被誉为美国的“莎士比亚”。

Herman Melville(August 1, 1819 – September 28, 1891) was an American novelist, writer of short stories, and poet from the American Renaissance period. The bulk of his writings was published between 1846 and 1857. Best known for his sea adventure Typee (1846) and his whaling novel Moby-Dick (1854), he was almost forgotten during the last thirty years of his life.

Poor old ship! Her very looks denote her desires! how deplorably she appears! The paint on her sides, burnt up by the scorching sun, is puffed out and cracked. See the weeds she trails along with her, and what an unsightly bunch of those horrid barnacles has formed about her stern-piece; and every time she rises on a sea, she shows her copper torn away, or hanging in jagged strips.
