Book Overview

Herman Melville s masterpiece in a deluxe 150th anniversary edition, one of the greatest works of imagination in literary history
Overa century and a half after its publication, Moby-Dickstill stands as an indisputable literary classic. It is the story of an eerily compelling madman pursuing an unholy war against a creature as vast and dangerous and unknowable as the sea itself. But more than just a novel of adventure, more than an encyclopedia of whaling lore and legend, Moby-Dickis a haunting, mesmerizing, and important social commentary populated with several of the most unforgettable and enduring characters in literature. Never losing its cultural prescence, Melville s nautical epic has inspired many films over the years, including the film adaptation of Nathanael Philbrick sIn the Heart of the Sea, starring Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, Ben Wishaw, and Brendan Gleeson, and directed by Ron Howard. Written with wonderfully redemptive humor, Moby-Dickis a profound and timeless inquiry into character, faith, and the nature of perception.
