Billy Budd, Sailor, his last work, is the masterpiece in which hedelivers the final summation in his quarrel with God. It is a brilliant study of the tragic clash between social authority and individual freedom, human justice and abstract good.

Melville alsoexplores this theme in Bartelby the Scrivener, his famous story about a Wall Street law clerk who takes passive resistance to a comic-and ultimately disastrous--extreme- and inBenito Cereno, his dazzling account of oppression and rebellion on a nineteenth-century slave ship. Completing this collection of great tales are the eerie The Encantados, thebeautiful, romantic The Piazza, and Melvilles chilling science fiction parable, The Bell-Tower.
