Captain Ahab is an eerily compelling madman who focuses his
distilled hatred and suffering (and that of generations before him)
into the pursuit of a creature as vast, dangerous and unknowable as
the sea itself. More than just a novel of adventure, this is a
haunting social commentary populated with some of the most enduring
characters in literature. Written with wonderfully redemptive
humour, Moby Dick is a profound and timeless inquiry into
character, faith and the nature of perception.
