In poetry and fiction, Herman Melville explored the epitaphic genre's capacity for destabilizing poetic voice and producing a temporality that is recursive but not necessarily recuperative. The epitaphs of Battle-Pieces (1866) invigorate the form while questioning its ability to memorialize the dead of the American Civil War.
