William Roberts: Herman Melville: Billy Budd, Sailor [Audiobook] *

Track List

Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Written some 40 years after 'Moby Dick', Herman Meville's 'Billy Budd' is a moving tale of good versus evil. Set aboard a British Navy ship at the end of the eighteenth century, a young, innocent sailor's charm and good nature put the men around him at ease. Mutiny was a continual threat greatly feared by naval officers. In order to keep crews in their place, even minor offenses, regardless of guilt or innocence,were harsly dealt with.
