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. "Bartleby" is the subtly comic tale of an apathetic scrivener, and "Benito Cereno" is the story of a Spanish sea captain caught up in a slave revolt on his ship. Along with others of The Piazza Tales is included "The Town-Ho's Story," a chapter from the author's undisputed masterpiece, Moby-Dick. By turns haunting and humorous, and always compelling, these fine stories convey the diversity and grandeur of Melville's talent as well as the depth of his themes.
