Aboard the warship Bellipotent, the young orphan Billy Budd was called the handsome sailor. Billy was tall, athletic, nobel looking; he was friendly, innocent, helpful and ever-cheerful. He was a fierce fighter and a loyal friend. All the men and officers liked him...

All but one: Master-at-Arms Claggart. Envious, petty Claggart plotted to make Billy's life miserable. But when a fear of mutinies swept through the fleet, Claggart realized he could do more than just torment the Handsome Sailor...He could frame Billy Budd for treason...

    Si le résumé de la 4ème de couverture nous parle d'une histoire prometteuse, le style a vieilli et le rythme est maladroit. De Melville, je conseillerais plutôt "Bartleby" ou "Vareuse blanche".
