The Daemon Knows Such is the title of a book on the enormous influence of an ancient Gnostic tenet on American writing of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by our preeminent critic Harold BloomAnd two faces of the Daemon rule this short but unfinished masterpiece by MelvilleOn one side the dumbstruck adherence to painful honesty in young Billy whom the captain of this 18th century Royal Navy Man o War calls the Angel of God and on the other the slimy and envious maleficence of Master of Arms ClaggartNeither man is the picture of a stalwart seaman they are both Odd Men OutFor just so the clash of Good and Evil Daemons within us evokes a veritable supernatural storm of Misrule and ends in appropriate tragedyFor a nautical Daemon is also a Lord of MisruleNow the Lord of Misrule was a theatrical custom created by the old salts in bygone daysOne selected raw spirited Ancient Mariner would be dressed in a robe crown and mitre and paraded about the deck of the Man o War as the young bucks partied with their enerous portions of rum and perhaps a pipe and fiddle tune a traditional seagoing perk on crossing the euator But the Lord of Misrule like his inspiration Neptune Aquarelle : Les marines god of the sea has a highly hazardous side when mankind sood and evil sides clash in a fictional typhoonAnd when Billy Budd crosses Claggart King Neptune lets loose with a storm composed of all the furies of Hell No not a real physical stormThe inevitable storm of justice in actionFor as in a bloody Jacobean tragedy when justice is done ALL the actors are cut downAnd all Sun God go to their Reward or Doom So Billyoes to his Reward by answering their brute sentences of doom in blessing them all echoing Rilke s Duino Elegies in which a released Arrow chooses Life over Death and finds PeaceAnd Billy Budd is just such an aporetic work for which the only solution is in blood sacrifice Because the staged shifting of Condamn me tuer guilt will wreak total MisruleAnd then the ultimate space of Final and Irrevocable Divine Justice Ends by enacting an inner apocalyptic bloodbathFor the Daemon too dies in the endBut we readers renewed by Melville s Catharsis are FREED Truth uncompromisingly told will always have its jagged edges Herman Melville Billy BuddReading Billy Budd left me thinking of David Foster Wallace and his unfinished novel The Pale King Both are unfinished literary works that despite their roughness and yes incompleteness seem to suggest or hint that ifiven timespacetemperament etc Melville and Wallace could have produced works eualling their respective magna opera Both are full of a confident stillness that hint at a Control Numrico y Programacin II (2 EDICIN): Sistemas de fabricacin de mquinas automatizadas (MARCOMBO

about an enigmatic amelanist whale was not a fluke Billy Budd s simplicity and shortness is deceptive the water here isn t wide but it is deep with strong currents At the end of reading this I was left with a dreamy visual of a iant wave which looks destined to break in a tremendous fashion against the ship I am sitting in At the very last moment however the swell rolls under my lonely craft While the ship survives there is that one full stop second that heavy moment as *the wave passes UNDER the portside where your bodymindandsoul recognizes the strength of the ocean and * wave passes

Budd Another In Melville folks Billy Budd another in Melville oeuvre of nautical tales of Irrevocable (Evan Arden, gay passion is shorter than his masterpiece and not as rewarding The problem is that it s kindof boring and not much happensIt was Melville s last work and he never really finished it he just left a ton of scribbles and sketches and conflicting drafts kicking around and maybe that s why it feels like a bit of a mess because it literally was before various people tried to stitch it togetherYour basic story is that there s this super prettyuy Billy Budd and this other dude on the ship Claggart is deeply closeted and therefore confused and eventually enraged by his unstoppable attraction to him So of course he view spoileraccuses him of plotting mutiny and then Budd punches him in the face and kills him and then the also possibly closeted captain has Budd martyred hide spoiler I had hoped that during the time that has lapsed between having had to read this and Moby Dick or The Whale as an undergraduate and now I would have warmed up a bit to Melville who along with Dickens holds the dubious distinction as being my least favorite canonical authors No dice I found this just as difficult to read and even difficult to sustain any kind of interest in and was most Lost Homeland, The Methow Tribe and the Columbia Reservation grateful for the relative brevity of Billy Budd especially as Melville s writing style can charitably be described as impenetrable if not at times actually unreadable The thing is I really really WANT to like Melville I love reading interpretations of Melville s writing as they are of the type that fracture and fragment under postmodern analysis bursting with utterly fascinating ueer resonances Certainly the all but slavering characterization of the titular character throughout the novella is one of thelories of homoerotic 19th century literature He was young and despite his all but fully developed frame in aspect looked even younger than he really was owing to a lingering adolescent expression in the as yet smooth face all but feminine in purity of natural complexion but where thanks to his seagoing the lily was uite suppressed and the rose had some ado visibly to flush through the tanOf course Billy s corporeal.

Le to note that the 1962 movie adaptation starring Terence Stamp Peter Ustinov and Robert Ryan is a top notch production very faithful to the original and highly recommended Billy Budd adds to the evidence in Moby Dick that Melville was a master of the English language and a master of all things nautical It s a reat short tale of Promenons-nous dans les bois good evil and the sometimes harrowing injustice of circumstance It was fascinating to see in Melville s last work the dramatic difference in his earlier writing and the style of Billy Budd For example comparing two completely random sentences first from TypeeIn the course of a few days Toby had recovered from the effects of his adventure with the Happar warriors the wound on his head rapidly healing under the vegetable treatment of theood TinorAnd from Billy BuddNevertheless to anybody who can hold the Present at its worth without being inappreciative of the Past it may be forgiven if to such an one the solitary old hulk at Portsmouth Nelson s Victory seems to float there not alone as the decaying monument of a fame incorruptible but also as a poetic reproach softened by its picturesueness to the Monitors and yet mightier hulls of the European ironcladsThe language in Billy Budd is remarkably dense and lush It makes for a difficult read but also makes the effort that much rewarding A DigressionThe other reviews of Billy Budd by high school kids and adults who read Billy Budd in high school are indicative of the overall uality of education in the US This isn t to come across as condescending if I had read it in High School my review would have probably been eually dismal since I was in no way prepared to appreciate a book that wasn t as exciting as a Bond movie or that used sentences complex than Lord of the Flies Billy Budd definitely shouldn t be reuired reading in high school at least not until high school provides a competent enough education for students to appreciate a L'Espionne de Tanger great work even if they don t like it But again I digressThe story of Billy Budd isn t the most moving that I ve ever read but the characters areood and it s interesting moral dilemma I think the criticism that it is too blatantly a metaphor for Christ come from people who either don t understand Billy Budd or don t understand the basics of the life of Christ Budd is probably a metaphorical character and maybe even for Christ but it s naive to Un hosanna sans fin give up on the book and characterize him as simply a mechanical metaphor for Christ There are enough differences enough other issues raised and enough nuances to make Billy Budd stand on its own as a solid book and a precautionary tale of the harsh realities of justice and circumstance Melville s Billy Budd Sailor represents an unfinished work but one that was in its 3rd draft at the point when the author died in 1891 which was subseuently tended to by his widow before being published toreat acclaim 30 years later in 1924 and then in a 2nd revised format in 1948 In reading the book a 3rd time I continue to find Melville s novella a most captivating tale and one conveying considerable psychological depth With each draft there was a broadening of the 3 principal characters 1st Billy Budd then the master of arms John Claggart and finally the ship s captain Edward Fairfax Vere With Herman Melville so much of the detail within his novels is reflective of his experiences at sea on whaling ships for as Melville put it I ascribe all the honor lory of my life to whaling for a whale ship was my Yale College my Harvard It was said that at this time men often ran away to the sea as women took themselves to a nunnery in an attempt to expiate past sins or alter their fate by somehow transforming themselves And so much of the author s nautical education involved a study of how men at sea interacted with one another observing the complexity of personalities on long whaling ship voyages particularly in view of the rigid hierarchy of roles in the case of Billy Budd set on board a British man of war in 1797 At the novel s outset Billy has just been transferred to the Bellipotent biding an audible farewell to the Rights of Man that being the name of his former merchant ship uickly providing a framework though which Billy is measured as a newcomer forced to adaptHowever Billy Budd is no ordinary sailor but rather an exceedingly innocent lad who his shipmates uickly come to love excepting the one named Claggart who Is Both Transfixed By both transfixed by s seeming purity of spirit and his stature among his fellow seaman Is Billy to be seen as a Christ figure or a ay icon of some sort with reviewers following both camps I sense that Billy is far complex than a character who can be uickly shoehorned into a single type My focus has remained that Billy a foundling somehow appears childlike untainted seemingly so natural so as to confound those he encounters displaying a uality that both amazes captivates those who observe him on

Beauty is rather problematically utilized by Melville as a symbol for purity innocence and moral as much as physical beauty something that ultimately creates a rather blank and even unsympathetic cipher of a character Not that Claggart his shadowy nemesis is accorded any particularly interiority either that would help rationalize the hatred he develops that will eventually destroy BillyBut Melville s silence in regards to the character of Claggart is also one of the most evocative ualities of the novella creating an opening that has often been interpreted as sexual in nature that Claggart is motivated by an attraction that is almost inevitably one sided that his fateful claim against Billy is rooted in a self hatred caused by this attraction etc One way or the other what interests me about Billy Budd is that Melville s elusively was appropriated by director Claire Denis for her lyrical and very loose adaptation Beau Travail France 1999 In Denis s capable hands the bare bones of Melville s story is transformed into a beautiful meditation on postcolonialism homoeroticism the human specifically male body marginality movement race relations etc etc etc that in its own way is just as elusive and endlessly evocative as Melville s text Only rendered if you excuse my very biased opinion with a masterfulness and density that Melville s text barely hints at Dear High School Curriculum WritersI am positive that you can find a better novel than this one to use when introducing symbolism and extended metaphor to developing readers Christ figure is the most over used of these extended metaphors over used to the point where its offensiveness ceases to be about the in your face religious aspect of it and becomes instead about the simple over use of the symbols If you want to The Cat and the Coffee Drinker go there with symbolism and metaphor and have high school age kids the ways in which literature can illuminate our experience not by representing it literally but by unhinging from it try helping these students discover Garcia Maruez or AllendeAnd that s just assuming you want to stay in the safe territory of the Western hemisphereEver your advisorme Herman Melville s place in the literary canon is secure today mainly on the strength of his novel Moby Dick but ironically that work was largely panned by critics and regular readers alike when it was published and in the last decades of his life he died in 1891 the author turned away from trying to publish fiction to write poetry instead But he didn tive up writing fiction privately and this novella begun late in 1888 is the testament to the fictional achievement of his later years It was discovered and pieced together among his disorganized papers in 1919 by his first biographer Raymond M Weaver who had been iven access by the author s widow and was published a few years later The current Wikipedia article makes the claim that it was unfinished at Melville s death but there s no internal or external evidence to that effect to my knowledge As it stands the text reads like a complete and coherent whole I read it in college for my American Literature class and appreciated it from the et oLike much of Melville s work this is set on the sea and benefits from his experience as a sailor on sail powered ships Unlike his other maritime novels though this is set in a British milieu *and in the eneration before the author s birth the British navy the Napoleonic Wars This is * in the A Mood Apart The Thinker's Guide to Emotion and Its Disorders generation before author s birth the British navy during the Napoleonic Wars This is setting much explored in subseuent fiction Though Melville wasn t the first writer to do so he had several 19th century predecessors especially if we consider age of sail naval fiction broadly and Melville s own earlier novel White Jacket or the World on a Man of War though dealing with the American navy was part of that 19th century tradition I think it s arguable that he was a significant influence on both the authors of Mutiny on the Bounty and C S ForesterIf you like later works of this type by the above mentioned authors or others such as Patrick O Brian and you aren t put off by 19th century diction this read might appeal to you as well Much shorter than Moby Dick it lacks the latter s info dumps and wordy philosophical digressions and the tighter narrative benefits from this The three main characters are very well developed the plot is well organized and absorbing and the tone and approach serious Nautical terminology isn t so thick that a modern day landlubber like myself can t understand it well enough to follow the basic narrative Withoutiving out any spoilers though readers should be warned that this isn t a feel Beyblade - Roman Vol.2 good story That wasn t the author s intentionThe ambiguity of Melville s messages here have been IMOreatly exaggerated by interpreters who like ambiguity It s definitely an exploration of the possible conflict between enuine justice and the letter of the law and through the last two chapters especially of the ways that people knowingly or unknowingly distort reality by seeing it through their own lenses or using it to serve their own agendas Unlike some critics I don t see any clear Christ symbolism in the protagonist I think that s something that s read into the text than deduced from it A victim of a Calvinist religious upbringing that repelled him Melville s attitude towards Christianity at least when he wrote his earlier works wasn t particularly positiveCritics tend to treat Moby Dick as Melville s masterpiece but I personally rated this tale higher and stand on that I can t say it s his masterpiece because I haven t read any of his other novels but I definitely want to someday Although Goodreads is concerned with books than film it s also worthwhi.
