In this outstanding work, Ishmael, the narrator, recounts the epic story of the insane quest that he becomes a part of as he boards the whaleship Pequod. It is the story of Captain Ahab, the vengeful whaler and his pursuit of Moby Dick, the elusive white whale, who on a previous voyage destroyed his boat and left Ahab a crippled and obsessive monomaniac. The insanity and the blind need for vengeance evoke fear and doubt in his crew members as Ahab threatens to lead the ship and all its members to an adventurous, yet increasingly, precarious culmination. Will Ahab recognize his own madness before the high seas of vengeance?

Moby Dick or The Whale (1851), written by Herman Melville, is considered an outstanding work of Romanticism and the American Renaissance. Born in New York City in 1819 into the American aristocracy, Herman Melville started to write in the winter of 1844-45, aged twenty-five. He wrote nine novels plus many short stories in eleven years, and initially with considerable commercial success. He wrote Typee (1846), which was a bestseller, as was the sequel Omoo (1847), after which he wrote Mardi (1849). He was known to have read Rabelais and for being deeply inspired by Shakespeare. In his final years he had been working on the manuscript of Billy Budd Sailor, which was left unfinished at his death and published only in 1924.
