Item Description...
"Billy Budd and the Piazza Tales," by Herman Melville, is part of the "Barnes & Noble Classics"" "series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of "Barnes & Noble Classics"
  • All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. "Barnes & Noble Classics "pulls together a constellation of influences--biographical, historical, and literary--to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works.

    Largely neglected in his own lifetime, Herman Melville mastered not only the great American novel but also the short story and novella forms. In "Billy Budd and The""Piazza Tales," Melville reveals an uncanny awareness of the inscrutable nature of reality.

    Published posthumously in 1924, "Billy Budd" is a masterpiece second only to Melville's "Moby-Dick." This complex short novel tells the story of "the handsome sailor" Billy who, provoked by a false charge, accidentally kills the satanic master-at-arms. Unable to defend himself due to a stammer, he is hanged, going willingly to his fate. Although typically ambiguous, "Billy Budd" is seen by many as a testament to Melville's ultimate reconciliation with the incongruities and injustices of life.

    "The Piazza Tales" (1856) comprises six short stories, including the perpetually popular "Benito Cereno" and "Bartleby," a tale of a scrivener who repeatedly distills his mordant criticism of the workplace into the deceptively simple phrase "I would prefer not to."Robert G. O'Meally is Zora Neale Hurston Professor of Literature at Columbia University, where he has served on the faculty for seventeen years; since 1999 he has been the director of Columbia's Center for Jazz Studies. He is the author of "The Craft of Ralph Ellison" and "Lady Day: The Many Faces of Billie Holiday," and the principal writer of "Seeing Jazz," the catalog for the Smithsonian Institution's exhibit on jazz painting and literature.

    Herman Melville (1819-1891) found early success with stories inspired by his adventures in the South Seas. His fortunes declined with the 1851 publication of Moby-Dick, now recognized as a masterpiece but scorned by Melville's contemporaries. The author was obliged to work as a New York City customs inspector and died in obscurity, three decades before the critical reassessment of his work.



    Herman Melville lived in New York City, in the state of New York. Herman Melville was born in 1819 and died in 1891.

    Reviews - What do our customers think?
    Great collection and editon  Jul 3, 2008
    Great collection AND edition! A lot of Americans read the short stories Billy Bud, Bartleby,or Benito Cereno at some point in their college life, and rightly so. Growing up in Belgium I have to admit I associated Melville only with whales ...
     
    Fine edition at a super price  Jan 25, 2008
    This is a superb edition at an exceptionally affordable price. O'Meally's insightful Introduction brings Melville to life for 21st-century readers. By relating Melville's prose to jazz (one of O'Meally's special fields), the Introduction gives a sense of the complex "riffs" running through the prose.

    This edition will probably displace the Penguin edition in many college courses.
