No American masterpiece casts quite as awesome a shadow as Melville's monumental <i>Moby Dick</i>. Mad Captain Ahab's quest for the White Whale is a timeless epic--a stirring tragedy of vengeance and obsession, a searing parable about humanity lost in a universe of moral ambiguity. It is the greatest sea story ever told. Far ahead of its own time, <i>Moby Dick</i> was largely misunderstood and unappreciated by Melville's contemporaries. Today, however, it is indisputably a classic. As D.H. Lawrence wrote, <i>Moby Dick</i> "commands a stillness in the soul, an awe . . . [It is] one of the strangest and most wonderful books in the world."
