Moby-Dick, Herman Melville's classic 1851 novel is the story of a wandering sailor by the name of Ishmael and his voyage aboard the whaling ship the "Pequod", which is commanded by Captain Ahab, a man who is obsessed with the capture of a single white whale of enormous size and ferocity. "Moby-Dick" is a novel rich with symbolism and full of complex themes including the examination of social classes and the struggle of good versus evil. While having been met with mixed reviews upon its first publication, "Moby-Dick" has since been recognized as one of the greatest works in the English language and has secured Melville's place in literary history.
