Notes:
The nineteenth-century tale of life aboard a New England whaling ship whose captain is obsessed with the pursuit of a huge white whale. Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS'sThe Great American ReadFirst published in 1851, Herman Melville's masterpiece is, in Elizabeth Hardwick's words, "the greatest novel in American literature." The saga of Captain Ahab and his monomaniacal pursuit of the white whale remains a peerless adventure story but one full of mythic grandeur, poetic majesty, and symbolic power. Filtered through the consciousness of the novel's narrator, Ishmael,Moby-Dickdraws us into a universe full of fascinating characters and stories, from the noble cannibal Queequeg to the natural history of whales, while reaching existential depths that excite debate and contemplation to this day.
