Bartleby the Scrivener is a maddening, yet poignant story of a man who prefers not to obey his attorney-employer who goes to extraordinary lengths in his attempt to placate his recalcitrant clerk.Billy Budd relates the fate of an innocent young sailor impressed on a British man-of-war who, when charged with fomenting mutiny by the diabolical master-at-arms, strikes out with his fist and kills the man.

But it is Captain Vere, as a consequence of trying Billy for his crime, who suffers the most excruciating punishment.Other fine Melville stories included are The Apple Tree Table, The Piazza, My Chimney, and The Happy Failure.
