„In the light of that martial code whereby it was formally to be judged, innocence and guilt personified in Claggart and Budd in effect changed places.“

—  Herman Melville, книга Billy Budd, Sailor
Billy Budd, the Sailor (1891), Context: In the light of that martial code whereby it was formally to be judged, innocence and guilt personified in Claggart and Budd in effect changed places.
