Book Details Author: Herman Melville Pages: Paperback Brand: Description How is this book unique? Illustrated About Billy Budd And Other Stories by Herman Melville "Billy Budd, Sailor," a classic confrontation between good and evil, is the story of an innocent young man unable to defend himself from wrongful accusations.
Outwardly a compelling narrative of events aboard a British man-of-war during the turmoil of the Napoleonic Wars, Billy Budd, Sailor is a nautical recasting of the Fall, a parable of good and evil, a meditation on justice and political governance, and a searching portrait of three extraordinary men. Though best-known for his epic masterpiece Moby- Dick, Herman Melville also left a body of short stories arguably unmatched in American fiction.
In the sorrowful tragedy of Billy Budd, Sailor; the controlled rage of Benito Cereno; and the tantalizing enigma of Bartleby, the Scrivener; Melville reveals himself as a singular storyteller of tremendous range and compelling power. Also including The Piazza Tales in full, this collection demonstrates why Melville stands not only 4.

The naval story of Billy Budd at the first look represents an interesting tale of shipboard life at the end of the eighteenth century. At several times throughout the novel Billy is linked to Adam and Claggart to the Serpent, or the entire story of the Fall of Men.
But there are also hints that Billy is compared to Jesus, as well as Claggart to the Devil.
Melville took the last part from the Matthew gospel Matt. All editions are complete and unabridged, and feature Introductions and Afterwords.
Aboard the warship Bellipotent, the young orphan Billy Budd was called the handsome sailor. Billy was tall, athletic, noble looking; he was friendly, innocent, helpful and ever-cheerful. He was a fierce fighter and a loyal friend.
All the men and officers liked him All but one: Master-at-Arms Claggart.
