Moby Dick

By Melville, Herman & Carl F. Hovde

Barnes & Noble Classics. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 2005. Hardcover. 9781593081669 . Hardcover in white boards w red cloth spine, in Fine unmarked condition in Fine jacket. " On its surface, Moby-Dick is a vivid documentary of life aboard a nineteenth-century whaler, a virtual encyclopedia of whales and whaling, replete with facts, legends, and trivia that Melville had gleaned from personal experience and scores of sources. But as the quest for the whale becomes increasingly perilous, the tale works on allegorical levels, likening the whale to human greed, moral consequence, good, evil, and life itself. Who is good? The great white whale who, like Nature, asks nothing but to be left in peace? Or the bold Ahab who, like scientists, explorers, and philosophers, fearlessly probes the mysteries of the universe? Who is evil? The ferocious, man-killing sea monster? Or the revenge-obsessed madman who ignores his own better nature in his quest to kill the beast? " ; Barnes & Noble Classics; 8.50 X 5.90 X 1.90 inches; 752 pp pages .
