About the Author

Herman Melville was an American novelist, poet, and lecturer best known for his classic novel Moby-Dick, as well as for his short fiction "Bartleby, the Scrivener," and the unfinished "Billy Budd, Sailor." Educated as a teacher and later as an engineer, Melville s writing was heavily influenced by his time aboard the whaling ship Acushnet, and his month-long captivity by Typee natives on Nuka Hiva island. Although Melville experienced success early in his writing career, public indifference to his masterpiece, Moby-Dick, resulted in waning attention, and his work was almost entirely disregarded by the time of this death in 1891. Melville s work experienced a revival in the early twentieth century, and he is now considered one of the pre-eminent American writers of his time. He is also one of the most-studied novelists, and was the first writer to be collected and published by the Library of America.

Based on the sinking of the whaleboat Essex, Moby Dick is the story of a whale bent on revenge and a captain who over the course of the book loses his mind. If you can get passed the olde English (which irritated me to no end in University) it really is an exceptional book on mans perceived dominion over the creatures of the earth and what happens when one doesn't behave as it is expected too. Too many subtexts to get into, but if you have never, read it and even if like me it was mandatory in university, read it again.

Great action story with most of the action inside the emotions. This is a classic for a reason. Glad I read it
