  • "Een jonge matroos die bij een ieder geliefd is vanwege zijn naïeve onschuld, doodt in oprechte woede de provoost die de matroos niet kan luchten of zien en hem van muiterij beschuldigt."
  • "Considered to be one of Melville's best short stories, "Benito Cereno" is a tale of the revolt aboard a Spanish ship."
  • "American Place Theatre, in association with J.B. Webster presents Robert Lowell's "The Old Glory," directed by Jonathan Miller, part II, "Benito Cereno" a realistic tragedy, Will Steven Armstrong, designer, Willa Kim, costume designer, Yehudi Wyner, composer, Esther Brooks, choreographer."

  • "Too short to be a novel, too long to be a short story, the novella is generally unrecognized by academics and publishers. Nonetheless, it is a form beloved and practiced by literature's greatest writers. In The Art of the Novella series, Melville House celebrates this renegade art form and its practitioners with titles that are, in many instances, presented in book form for the first time. With its intense mix of mystery, adventure, and a surprise ending, Benito Cereno at first seems merely a provocative example from the genre Herman Melville created with his early best-selling novels of the sea. However, most Melville scholars consider it his most sophisticated work, and many, such as novelist Ralph Ellison, have hailed it as the most piercing look at slavery in all of American literature. Based on a real life incident--the character names remain unchanged--Benito Cereno tells what happens when an American merchant ship comes upon a mysterious Spanish ship where the nearly all-black crew and their white captain are starving and yet hostile to offers of help. Melville's most focused political work, it is rife with allusions (a ship named after Santo Domingo, site of the slave revolt led by Toussaint L'Ouverture), analogies (does the good-hearted yet obtuse American captain refer to the American character itself?), and mirroring images that deepen our reflections on human oppression and its resultant depravities. -- Publisher's description."@en

It is, in short, a multi-layered masterpiece that rewards repeated readings, and deepens our appreciation of Melville's genius.

  • "In 1799, the American captain Amasa Delano anchored in the bay of a Chilean coastal desert island. The next morning at the site appeared a mysterious ship, the Santo Domingo. The maneuvers of the American sopechar it did it was a ship in distress, which ordered her to a boat and went to the mysterious ship to assist."
