Synopsis:
Melville's last work is a bold exploration of mutiny on the high seas. When crew member Billy Budd, a paragon of simple goodness, inadvertently kills the devlish master-at-arms, he is innocent in God's eyes--but he is subject to the King's stern law. Captain Vere--and the listener--must decide. 2 cassettes.
