Editorial Reviews

Review

"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


"From the Trade Paperback edition."

From the Publisher

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."

2.0 out of 5 stars Annoying sticker!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 26, 2018
Lovely looking book, however there was a price sticker on the back and unfortunately it has left a mark on the book, peeling off some of the pattern. I’m annoyed because I ordered 3 of these style books, and the other came with a card around the book with the price on, and I wish this could have been the same for all the books as the sticker has now ruined it.
