Moby Dick - Bantam Classic

We have run out of stock for this item.

No American masterpiece casts quite as awesome a shadow as Melville's monumental Moby DickMad 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." 

This edition of Moby-Dick, edited and with an introduction by Charles Child Walcutt, contains the complete text of the novel, a brief life of the author, selections from his letters(including the brilliant exchanges with Nathaniel Hawthorne), a sampling of reviews by Melville's contemporaries
