Melville's last work, it is a brilliant study of conflicts between social authority and individual freedom, human righteousness and evil. It is the story of a naive young man who is accused of a crime he has not committed. Melville has wonderfully portrayed the agony and helplessness of a young spirit against social injustice. Noteworthy for its infinite interpretations it arrests the reader's interest.
