Overview

Readable Classics gently edits the great works of literature, retaining their essence, spirit, and original voices, and making them more enjoyable and less frustrating for modern readers.

Moby-Dick is Herman Melville's 1851 masterpiece. Ishmael, a crewman aboard the whaling ship Pequod, narrates Captain Ahab's obsessive, doomed quest to destroy the great white whale that took his leg.

A tremendously ambitious novel, Moby-Dick became the first great American epic and myth, a tale of life at sea and the conflict between man and his fate. Brilliant, humorous, and bleak, Melville espouses his philosophy of life, death, religion, and moral values.
