Description

An innocent and lovable young man, pressed into naval service during the Napoleonic wars, is falsely accused of inciting mutiny in this haunting tale. Herman Melville's classic parable of the clash between good and evil offers a profoundly moving examination of the balance between authority and individual rights. This definitive edition presents the first accurate version of the author's final, unfinished novel.

Author Biography

Herman Melville (1819 - 1891) found early success with stories inspired by his adventures in the South Seas. His fortunes declined with the 1851 publication of Moby-Dick, now recognized as a masterpiece but scorned by Melville's contemporaries. The author was obliged to work as a New York City customs inspector and died in obscurity, three decades before the critical reassessment of his work.
