Moby-Dick is at once a thrilling adventure tale, a timeless allegory, and an epic saga of heroic determination and conflict. At its heart is the powerful, unknowable sea—and Captain Ahab, a brooding, one-legged fanatic who has sworn vengeance on the mammoth white whale that crippled him, Moby Dick. Ishmael, a wayfarer who joins the crew of Ahab's whaling ship, tells the story of that hair-raising voyage, and of the men who embraced hardship and nameless horrors as they dared to challenge God's most dreaded creation and death itself for a chance at immortality. A novel that the Atlantic monthly called "the greatest of American novels," Moby-Dick delves into the complex souls of men and is an impassioned drama of the ultimate human struggle.

Originally published in 1851, this 2013 edition includes an introduction by Elizabeth Renker, an afterword by Christopher Buckley, and a bibliography. This is part of Hewitt's Lightning Literature & Composition curriculum. See Related Items below.
