|Summary:||First published in 1851, this realistic account of a whaling voyage, drawing on Melville's own experience as a merchant seaman, contains within a symbolic account of the conflict between man and his fate. It is the fruit of Melville's three year residence in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. The extraordinary vigor and color of this novel and its philosophical and allegorical undertones reflecting on the nature of evil have given it a place among the classic sea stories and rendered it a perennial favorite.|
