Some brief overview of this book

Stung by the critical reception and lack of commercial success of his previous two works, Moby-Dick and Pierre, Herman Melville became obsessed with the difficulties of communicating his vision to readers. His sense of isolation lies at the heart of these later works. Billy Budd, Sailor, a classic confrontation between good and evil, is the story of an innocent young man unable to defend himself against a wrongful accusation. The other selections here-Bartleby, The Encantadas, Benito Cereno, and The Piazza-also illuminate, in varying guises, the way fictions are created and shared with a wider society. In his introduction Frederick Busch discusses Melvilles preoccupation with his correspondence with the world, his quarrel with silence, and why fiction was, for Melville, a matter of life and death.
