Billy Budd  (1891) 
by Herman Melville
Billy Budd is a novella begun around 1886 by Herman Melville, whose death in 1891 left the novel well-advanced but unfinished. The work was first published in 1924, posthumously. The work has been central to Melville scholarship since it was discovered in manuscript among Melville's papers in 1924.— Excerpted from Billy Budd on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
