Billy Budd and Other Tale. has been added to your Cart. Herman Melville was born in August 1, 1819, in New York City, the son of a merchant. Only twelve when his father died bankrupt, young Herman tried work as a bank clerk, as a cabin-boy on a trip to Liverpool, and as an elementary schoolteacher, before shipping in January 1841 on the whaler Acushnet, bound for the Pacific.
Herman Melville's short stories, somewhat neglected during his lifetime, today are considered to be among the small masterpieces of American fiction. His imagination is inventive, ironic, and extraordinarily attuned to our times.

Contains: Billy Budd The piazza Bartleby Benito Cereno The lightning-rod man The Encantadas, or, Enchanted Isles The bell-tower The town-ho's story from Moby Dick.
