Publisher's Summary

Herman Melville, the author of Moby Dick, takes us once more to the sea in the tragic, yet triumphant story of Billy Budd. A model merchant seaman, admired by crew and officers alike for his skill, masculine beauty, and noble nature, Billy Budd's life changes dramatically and irrevocably when he is impressed into the military.
Like many sailors in the late 18th century, Billy Budd is forced into service aboard a warship where life is ruthless and unforgiving. Amidst the accusations of inciting a mutiny and the harsh consequence of one impulsive act, Billy Budd must find the courage to remain strong and merciful, even while his life hangs in jeopardy.
