Moby-Dick; or, The Whale by Herman Melville is considered to be one of the Great American Novels and indeed one of the greatest novels of world literature. The novel follows the adventures of a wandering sailor, Ishmael, and his voyage on the whaleship Pequod, commanded by Captain Ahab. Ishmael discovers that Ahab has one purpose: to seek out a single whale called Moby Dick, a ferocious, enigmatic white sperm whale. Captain Ahab has been driven to take revenge on Moby Dick after a previous voyage when the whale destroyed his boat and bit off his leg. The novel was published in 1851, and although it initially met with mixed reviews it is now considered to be part of the canon of Western Literature.
