In Herman Melville's classic, Moby-Dick, is the tale of Captain Ahab as he seeks vengeance on the whale that destroyed his leg. On a previous voyage the whale had wrecked his ship and cause his leg to be torn off at the knee. In this narrative we see how a man can become a fanatic about his quest for revenge. But there is a depth to this novel that goes far beyond a sea-faring tale.
Moby Dick has been called "one of the strangest and most wonderful books in the world," and "the greatest book of the sea ever written." It borrows from Melville's experience at sea, from his knowledge of whaling, and from literary inspirations such as Shakespeare and the Bible. "Call me Ishmael", the opening sentence of the novel, is one of world literature's most famous openings. The realistic descriptions of whale hunting and of extracting whale oil, as well as life aboard ship among a culturally diverse crew, are mixed with exploration of class and social status, good and evil, and the existence of God.
