Book Review

By Will Raven

First published in 1851, Herman Melville’s masterpiece, Moby Dick, is one of the greatest works of imagination in literary history. Over a century and a half after its publication, Moby-Dick still stands as an indisputable literary classic.

It is the story of an eerily compelling madman pursuing an unholy war against a creature as vast and dangerous and unknowable as the sea itself.
 
Number 46 of 100 America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.
 
This Penguin Classics deluxe edition features a foreword by Nathaniel Philbrick and cover art by Tony Millionaire.
