Attraverso gli occhi di Ismaele, narratore onnisciente e personaggio principale del romanzo (nonostante di lui non si sappia quasi nulla, se non che si è imbarcato sulla baleniera Pequod come marinaio), viene raccontata l’impresa del capitano Achab. A caccia di balene e capodogli, il coraggioso capitano ha in realtà un solo obiettivo: trovare Moby Dick, l’astuta e malvagia balena bianca, temuta da tutti i cacciatori per la sua ferocia, che anni prima l’ha mutilato con un colpo di coda, infliggendogli dolorose ferite. Terrore dei mari, la balena bianca è vista come il simbolo del male e della forza brutale della Natura, ma anche del destino e del dramma della vita umana. Nei suoi confronti il capitano Achab ha sviluppato un odio profondo: assetato di vendetta, la insegue per i mari di tutto il mondo fino a ritrovarla nell’oceano Pacifico, dove ha luogo una lotta che dura per tre lunghi giorni...Pubblicato nel 1851, per le numerose riflessioni e digressioni scientifiche, filosofiche, religiose e artistiche il romanzo Moby Dick è ritenuto il precursore del modernismo e uno dei massimi capolavori della letteratura americana.

    A review of Moby-Dick? Right. It's been around for 150 odd years. It'll be around for at least another 150 odd. For good reason. If Shakespeare wrote Genesis and the Book of Judges, this might be a nice approximation of how Melville writes. And that's how I would describe Moby-Dick.Other notes, pay attention to Ahab's speech patterns and his spiritual journey throughout Moby-Dick; you'd swear he was a maimed Hamlet.

    In my view, America's greatest novel. Timeless, poetic and emblematic of a once great industry dominated by Americans.

    I don't suggest reading this unless you enjoy torture or just want to say "yah, that's right - I read Moby Dick!" I just do not like this book at all.

    Read this out of a sense of duty, while recovering from surgery for a deviated septum, which required laying on my back for a week. I thought it was pretty good.

    The most beautiful modern edition of an undisputed masterpiece. Stranger, funnier, and more varied than I imagined, this edition literally stopped people on the street. A homeless man in San Francisco stopped and admired the book, smiling as he told me he "needed that".

    On my should read list list but avoided successfully for 45 years. Between the Philbrick recommendation and the lauds to Hootkins' narration, I finally succumbed and spent nearly a month of commutes taking the big story in, and the next month thinking about the story. SO glad I listened rather than skimmed as a reader. It has everything;. Agree with Floyd 3345 re fiction and nonfiction shelving

    Considered an encyclopedic novel. Never heard of this before but it fits. In this story based on the author's whaling voyage in 1841, Moby Dick, or the white whale, inspired by Mocha Dick and the sinking of the whaleship Essex. The detail is very realistic and in this book you not only learn about whale hunting, you learn about whales and porpoise and ships. Chapters are dedicated to lengthy descriptions. On the ship, the reader is introduced to a cultural mixture of class and social status as well as good and evil and the existence of God. Melville used narrative prose but also songs, poetry, catalogs and other techniques from plays. The story is told through Ishmael. Plot:Ishmael meets up with Queequeg and shares a bed because the inn is overcrowded. Queegueg is a harpooner and they sign unto the Pequod. Characters:Ishmael: Queequeg:Starbuck: first mateStubb: second mateTashtego: Indian from Gay Head (harpooner)Flask: third mate,Daggoo: harpooneer from Africa. Captain Ahab: Fadallah: a harpooneer, Parse. Pip: black cabin boyThe boats: Jeroboam, Samule Enderby, the Rachel, The Delight and Pequod. These ships all have encountered Moby Dick. Ahab is obsessed with revenge against Moby Dick because of the loss of his leg which the whale bit off. There are several gams or meetings of whale boats. Ending with a tireless pursuit of the whale without regard to the dangers it exposes the sailors of Pequod. Starbuck begs Ahab to quit. Structure:narrator shapes the story by using sermons, stage plays, soliloquies and emblematic readings. The narrator is the aged Ishmael. There is also narrative architecture. There are 9 meetings with other boats.
