Product Description
A detailed analysis of Herman Melville’s novella "Billy Budd," including its philosophy, plot, themes, symbolism of the characters’ names, religious allusions, and Billy’s verdict. This last topic is designed to encourage your students to discuss where Billy received a fair trial. A lively debate often ensues when that question is put to the class. My handout, which has blanks that your students can fill in, is suitable for a homework assignment or as a two-period in-class activity with students dividing into small groups among which you pass, acting as a facilitator if requested. You may also want to incorporate some information (such as the symbolism of the names, which in its depth is unique to my handout) in your own lecture notes or other class activities. An answer key is provided on a separate page at the end of the handout. Prepared by Professor William Tarvin, Ph. D., who has published many articles on literature in scholarly journals.
