Billy Budd, a paragon of simple goodness and virile beauty, is press-ganged into the crew of HMS Indomitable in 1797, soon after the mutiny in the British fleet. Billy is popular with everyone on board except Claggart, the master-at-arms, a depraved and wicked man. His malice towards Billy results in a death, a court-martial and an execution at sea.

    " In high school, we read this in lieu of Moby Dick because it was shorter. Hang it all, there's apparently more than meets the aye-yi (sir), but it was lost on us! "

    " Good vs. Evil plain and simple. My prep school drama club did this one. Good job too. No, I was not in that club. Just the audience. Date read is a guess. "
