Summary

Well over a century after its publication, Moby-Dick still stands as an indisputable literary classic. It is the story of an eerily compelling madman pursuing an unholy war against a creature as vast and dangerous and unknowable as the sea itself. But more than just a novel of adventure, more than an encyclopedia of whaling lore and legend, Moby-Dick is a haunting, mesmerizing, and important social commentary populated with several of the most unforgettable and enduring characters in literature. Written with wonderfully redemptive humor, Moby- Dick is a profound and timeless inquiry into character, faith, and the nature of perception. @greatwhitetale Call me Ishmael. You could call me something else if you want, but since that's my name, it would make sense to call me Ishmael. Captain obsessed with finding a whale called Moby Dick. Sounds like the meanest VD ever, if you ask me. Sorry. Old joke. Couldn't resist. From Twitterature: The World's Greatest Books in Twenty Tweets or Less
