Translated from Amazon using Google translate: Melville starts from afar. Initiations, introductions, philosophical arguments about the benefits of sea voyages are, we note, from the first person, on behalf of Ishmael. Initially, Izmail appears before the reader is a mature, wise man. Then suddenly it turns out that Ishmael is a very young man, a romantic hero who wants to see the world. Behavior, words, deeds, thoughts vividly testify to this. His acquaintance with Quique, the entire length of time before getting on board the Pecoda, all this concerns young Ishmael. Here it becomes clear that the original "Ismail philosopher" is someone else, perhaps the author himself.

Work Description

"Command the murderous chalices! Drink ye harpooners! Drink and swear, ye men that man the deathful whaleboat's bow -- Death to Moby Dick!" So Captain Ahab binds his crew to fulfil his obsession -- the destruction of the great white whale. Under his lordly but maniacal command the Pequod's commercial mission is perverted to one of vengeance. To Ahab, the monster that destroyed his body is not a creature, but the symbol of "some unknown but still reasoning thing." Uncowed by natural disasters, ill omens, even death, Ahab urges his ship towards "the undeliverable, nameless perils of the whale." Key letters from Melville to Nathaniel Hawthorne are printed at the end of this volume. - Back cover.
