    Resumo Billy Budd, Sailor

    Herman Melville's final masterpiece, found unpublished on his desk at his death.

    Billy Budd, Sailor would emerge, after its publication in 1924, as one of Melville's best-loved books--and one of his most open, with its discussion of homosexualty.

    In it, Melville returns to the sea to tell the story of Billy, a cheerful, hard working, and handsome young sailor, conscripted to work against his will on another ship, where he soon finds himself persecuted by Claggart, the paranoid master-at-arms. As things escalate beyond the naive Billy's control, tragedy looms on the horizon like Melville's great white whale, and the story become Melville's final, sublime plunge into the classic tussle between civilization and chaos, between oppression and freedom, as well as the book in which he discusses homosexuality most openly.

    One of the major works of American literature.

    Mais Informações Billy Budd, Sailor

    In 1797 during the Napoleonic Wars, Lieutenant Ratcliffe of the H.M.S. Bellipotent is picking men for the ship's next expedition. Billy Budd is selected, and speaking to Billy's old shipmaster, Ratcliffe finds out that he was enormously admired on board his last ship and that the shipmaster considers him something of a peacemaker.
    However, Ratcliffe has also a new master-at-arms for the voyage, a man named John Claggart, who it emerges is seemed somehow "defective or abnormal in the constitution," possessing a "natural depravity." He takes an instant dislike to simple and good-natured Billy Budd, until a final confrontation ends in tragedy.
    One of Herman Melville's most admired works next to "Moby Dick", 2Billy Budd, Sailor" is a powerful tale of morality, duty, loyalty and forgiveness and a true classic of literature.
