Esta es la base argumental de la novela, que forma parte de una antologia llamada Cuentos de la plaza que tienen en comun la descripcion de personas que viven por fuera de la sociedad.

A harrowing tale of slavery and revolt aboard a Spanish ship, this is regarded by many as Melville's finest short story.

    " What a wild thriller!

    I still don't have final perspective on how this is in regards to race/slavery. I can't wait to read it again. I feel like I missed some important things. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 11/23/2010

    " A tense and surprising tale. Melville sure loves the sea. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andreea | 10/4/2010

    " I expected a different course of the explanation...but anyway, it was nice time reading it... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 10/2/2010

    " "Benito Cereno" is powerful in so many ways, but I have to admit that I slogged through it rather unwillingly. English class, naturally. Also - though this was exactly the point - the racism made me cringe in many places! Now... essay time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Myriam | 9/22/2010

    " I understand the importance of the writing, but I can't say that I really enjoyed it. This is one of those books that reveal themselves more intresting upon analysis. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 9/18/2010

    " I know I should give this one five stars, but it's just not that fun to wade through the ending chronicle... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 6/16/2010

    " One of my favorite books in college. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 5/27/2010

    " Seems a little odd for me to be reading a book on mutinays' in the 1850's; however a great book on the struggle of power and the use of strategy. I have read this probably 4 times in the last 10 years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maxwell | 4/11/2010

    " After getting through all the long-winded wordiness in the first 98.9% of the story, ended up liking it by the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 4/8/2010

    " Essential reading that provides a cautionary tale intended for those in the world who are blinded by socially constructed ideas and identities, those who are ignorant to the harsh realities and danger that exists in our world. Not to mention, a very intriguing tale all on its own. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shanae | 4/4/2010

    " Didn't like it. It's just that simple. I read a little bit of "The Good Captain" by Jay Bushman, which was based on "Benito Cereno" & I enjoyed "The Good Captain" much more than "Benito Cereno." Now I see why this text has basically been forgotten. "

About the Author
Author Herman Melville

Herman Melville (1819–1891) was born in New York City. Family hardships forced him to leave school for various occupations, including shipping as a cabin boy to Liverpool in 1839—a voyage that sparked his love for the sea. A shrewd social critic and philosopher in his fiction, he is considered an outstanding writer of the sea and a great stylist who mastered both realistic narrative and a rich, rhythmical prose. He is best known for his novel Moby-Dick and the posthumously published novella Billy Budd.
