Description

Journey to the heart of the sea with this larger-than-life classic.

Regarded as a Great American Novel, Moby Dick is the ultimate tale of seeking vengeance.

Narrated by the crew member Ishmael, this epic whaling adventure follows the crew of the Pequod, as its captain, Ahab, descends deeper and deeper into madness on his quest to find and kill the white whale that maimed him. Beyond the surface--of ship life, whaling, and the hunt for the elusive Moby Dick--are allegorical references to life--and even the universe--in this masterpiece by Herman Melville.

Complete and unabridged, this elegantly designed clothbound edition features an elastic closure and a new introduction by Christopher McBride.

The author

Christopher McBride holds a Ph.D. in English from Claremont Graduate University and has taught writing and literature at a number of colleges. He writes about 19th- and 20th-century American literature with an emphasis on travel writers.
