Herman Melville's 'Benito Cereno'
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page analysis of Melville's story, focusing on the denial and rationalization abilities of Captain Delano. The story ultimately is the illustration of the unthinking prejudice of race based on a lack of understanding, and the author makes his points against the backdrop of mental instability and lack of mental wholeness.
