The consequences are disastrous, andnothing can prevent the force of judgment and eventual justiceupon him. Discovered among Melville's papers after his deathand published posthumously in 1924, 'Billy Budd' is a powerfultale of guilt and innocence, crime and punishment, and thecost of adhering to duty.

From the author of 'Moby Dick', Melville's allegorical tales areloaded with symbolism, and showcase his distinctive writingstyle and themes in shorter form.
