Benito Cereno
This epic sea adventure, a harrowing tale of slavery and revolt aboard a Spanish ship, is often regarded as Melville's finest short story. The balance of forces is complete, the atmosphere one of epic significance, the light cast upon the hero intense to the highest degree, the realization of the human soul profound, and the telling of the story orchestrated like a great symphony.

From Library Staff

True human horror. Based on actual events and easier to digest than 'Moby-Dick' and 'Billy Budd,' this slim novella is highly recommended. Over. And over.
