Billy Budd by Herman Melville

Book Description

If Melville had never written "Moby Dick," his place in literature would have been assured by his short fiction. "Billy Budd, Sailor" is his last work and his masterpiece -- a brilliant study of the tragic clash between social authority and individual freedom, human justice and abstract good. In "Bartleby the Scivener," a Wall Street law clerk takes passive resistance to a comic -- and tragic -- extreme. Completing the beautiful collection are: "Benito Cerino, " "The Encantatas, " "The Plaza, " and finally, Melville s chilling science fiction parable, "The Bell Tower."

Books By Author Herman Melville

Pierre by Herman Melville Pierre, Paperback (January 2017)

When Pierre was published one year after Moby-Dick, expectations were high. Readers expected-and Melville delivered-adventure, humor, and brilliance. Magnificent and strange, Pierre is a richly allusive novel mirroring both antebellum America and Melville's own life.
