“Call me Ishmael.” Thus starts the greatest American novel. Melville said himself that he wanted to write “a mighty book about a mighty theme” and so he did. It is a story of one man’s obsessive quest for revenge against the white whale, Moby-Dick. Woven into the story of the last journey of the Pequod is a mesh of philosophy, rumination, religion, history, and a mass of information about whaling through the ages. This epic story, here presented in unabridged form, receives an equally epic reading from the outstanding actor William Hootkins.

Author Bio: Herman Melville

Author Bio: Herman Melville

Herman Melville (1819–1891) was born in New York City. Family hardships forced him to leave school for various occupations, including shipping as a cabin boy to Liverpool in 1839—a voyage that sparked his love for the sea. A shrewd social critic and philosopher in his fiction, he is considered an outstanding writer of the sea and a great stylist who mastered both realistic narrative and a rich, rhythmical prose. He is best known for his novel Moby-Dick and the posthumously published novella Billy Budd.
