This tale of the sea is one of literature's best known adventure
stories. Herman Melville was an 18th century American novelist,
poet, essayist and short story writer. He is best known for his
works Moby Dick and Typee. During his lifetime he was considered a
failure, but after his death his worth as a writer was recognized.
In Moby Dick the sailor Ishmael tells the story of Captain Ahab's
obsessive pursuit of a great white sperm whale. The novel is an
allegory of human potential and man's limitations. Themes in the
book include obsession, religion, idealism versus pragmatism,
revenge, racism and politics.
