No American masterpiece casts quite as awesome a shadow as Melville's monumental "Moby Dick." Mad Captain Ahab's quest for the White Whale is a timeless epic--a stirring tragedy of vengeance and obsession, a searing parable about humanity lost in a universe of moral ambiguity. It is the greatest sea story ever told. Far ahead of its own time, "Moby Dick" was largely misunderstood and unappreciated by Melville's contemporaries. Today, however, it is indisputably a classic. As D.H. Lawrence wrote, "Moby Dick" "commands a stillness in the soul, an awe . . . It is] one of the strangest and most wonderful books in the world."

"Responsive to the shaping forces of his age as only men of passionate imagination are, even Melville can hardly have been fully aware of how symbolical an American hero he had fashioned in Ahab." --F. O. Matthiessen
