Billy Budd

by Herman Melville

Written during the last years of Melville's life, a quarter of a century after his main work, by which his reputation was established, had been completed; and it was not published until 1924, when it was included in the limited Standard Edition. In the opinion of many critics it is Melville's most significant work after Moby Dick, and one of the most remarkable short novels ever written.
