Moby Dick – Herman Melville

Moby Dick – Herman Melville

This is the sixth book by American writer Herman Melville. The work is an epic sea-story of Captain

Ahab’s voyage in hunt of Moby Dick, a great white whale. It originally received mixed reviews and at

Melville’s death in 1891 was remembered, if at all, as a children’s sea adventure, but now is considered

one of the Great American Novels and a leading work of American Romanticism. The opening line, “Call

me Ishmael,” is one of the most recognizable opening lines in Western literature. Ishmael then narrates

the voyage of the whale ship Pequod, commanded by Captain Ahab. Ahab has one purpose: revenge

on Moby Dick, a ferocious, enigmatic white whale which on a previous voyage destroyed Ahab’s ship

and severed his leg at the knee. The detailed and realistic descriptions of whale hunting and the

process of extracting whale oil, as well as life aboard ship among a culturally diverse crew, are mixed

with exploration of class and social status, good and evil, and the existence of God
