Herman Melville was already considered to be a successful author when he wrote "Moby-Dick" in just under two years. Yet despite his earlier success, the novel was widely misunderstood by its 19th-century readers, who expected a more traditional adventure novel. Today "Moby-Dick" is considered to be an undisputed classic, and many believe it to be the epitome of the great American novel. With an unforgettable cast of characters, including the mad Captain Ahab, Melville skillfully documents the Pequod crew's tragic hunt for the great white whale. The full-length essays presented in Herman Melville's "Moby Dick, Updated Edition" provide expert commentary on the huge canvas of symbols themes, and subjects presented in this novel, as well as an introduction, a chronology, a bibliography, and an index that will help students navigate confidently through Melville's masterpiece.
