Benito Cereno is recognized as one of Melville's most fascinating creations, a combination of sea-story, horror story, adventure story, mystery story, and much more. Undeniably it is a story of provocative complexity, and this denseness is heightened by the conscious artistry of the interlocking system of image patterns.
