The novel is nominally about the obsessive hunt by the crazed Captain Ahab of the book’s eponymous white whale. But interspersed in that story are digressions, paradoxes, philosophical riffs on whaling and life, and a display of techniques so advanced for its time that some have referred to the Moby Dick as the first “modern” novel.

I just finished a great story of Moby Dick, the great white whale, and the men who hunted book is named Herman Melville 's Moby Dick is simplified and adapted by Robert J. Dixson. The story of the journey of the whaling happooner really attracted readers. Published in New York in the American Classics, the book consists of 19 chapters, is much less than the original.

  The book is the sailor Ishmael's narrative of the obsessive quest of Ahab, captain of the whaling ship Pequod, for revenge on Moby Dick, the giant white sperm whale that on the ship's previous voyage bit off Ahab's leg at the knee. Received the book in good condition thanks to Amazon 👍 Reviews: K. On board the whaling ship Pequod, a crew of wise men and fools, renegades, and seeming phantoms is hurled through treacherous seas by a crazed captain hell-bent on hunting down Moby Dick, the mythic White Whale who left him crippled. As the ""great flood-gates of the wonder-world"" swing open, Melville transforms the little world of the whale-ship into a crucible where mankind's fears, faith 4/5(17).
