Moby Dick is the 1851 novel by Herman Melville describing the voyage of the whaling ship Pequod commanded by Captain Ahab who leads his crew on a hunt for the great whale, Moby-Dick. The narrator's... More > reflections, along with complex descriptions of the grueling work of whaling and the personalities of his shipmates, are woven into a profound meditation on society, nature, and the human struggle for meaning, happiness, and salvation. Moby Dick is often considered the epitome of American Romanticism. The novel frequently employs Shakespearean devices, including formal stage directions and extended soliloquies and asides. The first line of Chapter One -"Call me Ishmael."- is one of the most famous in American literature. Moby-Dick is considered to be one of the greatest novels in the English language and now one of a series of classic ocean going adventure novels by Quillquest Classic Books.

This book isn't really about a whale, it's just a metaphor for something or other, I don't know, I'm a film student for god's sake!

Moby Dick By Herman Melville
eBook (ePub): $5.00
Moby Dick is the story of sailor Ishmael's voyage on Captain Ahab's whaleship Pequod. Ishmael realizes that Ahab has one purpose: to seek out and kill Moby Dick, a ferocious, enigmatic white sperm... More > whale that had destroyed Ahab's last boat and bit off his leg. The book portrays destructive obsession and monomania, as well as projecting human instincts, characteristics and motivations onto the whale. Moby Dick is ruthless in attacking the sailors who attempt to hunt and kill him, but it is Ahab who invests Moby Dick with malignant and evil intentions. In fact, it is not the whale but the crippled Ahab who possesses these evil characteristics. Moby-Dick contains large sections [most of them narrated by Ishmael] that seemingly have nothing to do with the plot but describe aspects of the whaling business. Melville believed that no book up to that time had portrayed the whaling industry in the way he viewed it, and wanted to craft something educational and definitive.< Less
Moby Dick By Herman Melville
eBook (ePub): $5.99
Herman Melville's masterpiece Moby-Dick was published in 1851 to little critical acclaim. It is the story of the wandering sailor Ishmael's voyage on the whaling ship Pequod, which is commanded by... More > Captain Ahab. The Captain is inexorably obsessed with the Great White Whale who destroyed his boat and took his leg. This is what the book is ostensibly about, and with its long descriptions of whales, whaling, stringing one's harpoon, and a muddled plot, it has confounded readers since its publication. Some argue that this book shouldn't be assigned in high school and they're probably right: it's long, filled with subplots and allegories; the language is dense and clumsy in places, and it reads like the epic dialogue from Paradise Lost. It is biblical in its depth and scope - it contains poetry, philosophy, comedy and tragedy, and the struggle it portrays is for nothing less than the soul itself. Moby Dick was more or less forgotten until the 1920s, and Melville published little after its failure.< Less
