Moby-Dick

Moby-Dick

by Herman Melville
Hardback
Publication Date: 11/12/2013
  $50.90
The work is an epic sea-story of Captain Ahab's voyage in pursuit of Moby Dick, a great white whale. It initially received mixed reviews and at Melville's death in 1891 was remembered, if at all, as a children's sea adventure, but now is considered one of the Great American Novels and a leading work of American Romanticism. Moby-Dick; or, The Whale (first published in 1851) is the sixth book by American writer Herman Melville. Its reputation has steadily risen during the twentieth-century and now it is recognized as a highlight in the history of human creativity, comparable to the six weeks in 1788 when Mozart composed his final three symphonies.

Herman Melville

The writing career of Herman Melville (1819 - 1891) peaked early, with his early novels, such as Typee becoming best sellers.

By the mid-1850s his poularity declined sharply, and by the time he died he had been largely forgotten.

Yet in time his novel Moby Dick came to be regarded as one of the finest works of American, and indeed world, literature, as was Billy Budd, which was not published until long after his death, in 1924.
