Auteur: Melville, Herman
Titel: Billy Budd and other tales
Sub titel:

The short stories of Herman Melville are considered today to be among the small masterpieces of American fiction. Billy Budd, Melville's posthumously published novella, is a classic tale of innocence, evil, and murder that depicts the rivalry between a simple, handsome young sailor and a demonic superior. Bartlebey is the subtly comic tale of an apathetic scrivener, and Benito Coreno is the story of a Spanish sea captain caught up in a slave revolt on his ship. Included in this volume are The Piazza Tales as well as The Town-Ho's Story, a chapter from Moby Dick. By turns haunting and comic, and always compelling, these fine stories convey the diversity and grandeur of Melville's talent as well as the depth of his themes. Introduction by Joyce Carol Oates
