AUTHOR

Melville, Herman

SUMMARY

If Melville had never written Moby-Dick, his place in world literature would be assured by his short tales. "Billy Budd, Sailor," his last work, is the masterpiece in which he delivers the final summation in his "quarrel with God." It is a brilliant study of the tragic clash between social authority and individual freedom, human justice and abstract good. Melville also explores this theme in "Bartleby the Scrivener," his famous story about a Wall Street law clerk who takes passive resistance to a comic-and ultimately disastrous-extreme; and in "Benito Cereno," his dazzling account of oppression and rebellion on a nineteenth-century slave ship. Completing this collection of great tales are the eerie "The Encantadas," the beautiful, romantic "The Piazza," and Melville's chilling science fiction parable, "The Bell-Tower."Melville, Herman is the author of 'Billy Budd Sailor and Other Stories ' with ISBN 9780553212747 and ISBN 0553212745.
