Críticas:

-Moby-Dick is America's essential 'big book: ' physically daunting in sheer number of pages; cosmic and endlessly mysterious in its iconography; epic in the sweep of the story--and, for all of those reasons, irresistible to visual artists. In this riveting study Schultz follows her whale through uncharted waters, daring to discuss comic-book versions of Moby-Dick and collectible glass whales alongside the paintings of Jackson Pollock. The result is a rich and dazzling exploration of texts--visual and verbal--and contexts, centered on the problem of abstraction in the art of our century.---Karal Ann Marling, author of As Seen on TV: The Visual Culture of Everyday Life in the 1950s -Melville readers both old and new will rub their delighted eyes to behold the unexpected vistas spread in this sophisticated, closely detailed, and profusely illustrated book. It will take its place on the short list of major Melville studies and offers an appealing new approach for interpreting Moby-Dick.---Harrison Hayford, general editor of The Writings of Herman Melville -Combining a keen appreciation for literature with an equal one for art, Schultz gives new illumination to an American masterwork, literally illustrating its enduring greatness.---Charles C. Eldredge, former director of the National Museum of American Art and author of Georgia O'Keeffe: American and Modern -This is a prodigious and brilliantly realized work that does something so imaginative yet so obvious that readers will wonder why it has not been done before. The range of artists Schultz addresses is staggering and her understanding of Moby-Dick is superb.---Robert K. Wallace, author of Melville and Turner: Spheres of Love and Fright

Reseña del editor:

This text re-evaluates the literary symbol of "Moby-Dick" and provides a different way of reading one of the famous texts of American literature. Ranging from the realists to the abstract expressionists, from the famous to the obscure, Schultz reveals how these artists have tried to capture the essence of the meaning of "Moby-Dick" meanings and to use it as a springboard for their own imaginations. One of the most frequently and diversely illustrated of American novels, "Moby-Dick" has attracted book illustrators in Rockwell Kent, Boardman Robinson, Garrick Palmer, Barry Moser, Bill Sienkiewicz, among others. It has also inspired creations by artists such as Jackson Pollock, Frank Stella, Sam Francis, Benton Spruance, Leonard Baskin, Theodoros Stamos, Richard Ellis, Ralph Goings, Seymour Lipton, Walter Martin, Tony Rosenthal, Richard Serra and Theodore Roszak. The artists reflect in equal measure the novel's realistic (plot, character, natural history) and philosophical modes, its visual and visionary dimensions. Others view the novel as a touchstone for feminist, multicultural, and environmental themes, or mock its status as a cultural icon. The author demonstrates how these and many other diverse talents enlarge the reader's appreciation of "Moby-Dick" and how literature and art can amplify each other's meanings and achievements. Yet ultimately, she, like Melville, concludes that the great white whale remains unpainted and unread in any absolute or final sense.
