Michael Hancher: publication re Melville's Billy Budd

Melville's Billy Budd

  • "Billy Budd: Famous Last Words." Cardozo Studies in Law and Literature 1 (1989): 109-21.
The analytic intentionalism espoused by Walter Benn Michaels in "Against Theory" and elsewhere is too strong, but in allowing for the possibility of misinterpretation it accommodates the history of Melville's Billy Budd, a tale that encodes error and guarantees misinterpretation.
