About the Author
Herman Melville (1819–1863) is one of America’s greatest writers. During his lifetime, Melville published nine novels, a collection of tales, and four volumes of poetry, along with various uncollected tales, poems, and reviews.
Peter Coviello (introduction and notes) is a professor of American literature and queer studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago. His books include Intimacy in America: Dreams of Affiliation in Antebellum Literature and, most recently, Tomorrow’s Parties: Sex and the Untimely in Nineteenth-Century America, which was a finalist for a 2013 Lambda Award in LGBT Studies.

In fact, I even went back and watched the Peter Ustinov and Terence Stamp classic film, based on the novel, which I can also recommend: Billy Budd
What I want to say in this review is that: In selecting a new version of the novel to read, I spent a lot of time looking over various versions available to me. And I'm very pleased with this edition and its supplements. If you're similarly searching around Amazon for a good edition, you'll do very well with this Penguin Classics edition. Because these reviews sometimes migrate to other pages for other versions of the same book, I'll specify here that I'm talking about the edition listed as ASIN: B00Y9HIMLY
