Billy Budd, Sailor has been called the best short novel ever written. In his brilliantly condensed narrative prose, Herman Melville fashions a legal parable in which reason and intellect prove incapable of preserving innocence in the face of evil. Since its posthumous publication in 1924, Billy Budd has become one of the acknowledged masterpieces of American literature.
