Description

Moby Dick was first published in Britain, as The Whale, in 1851. It is an extraordinary book, made up of 135 chapters, all written in a variety of styles--from sailors' slang to biblical prophecy and Shakespearian rant. Ishmael, the narrator, tells of the adventures of Captain Ahab in his relentless quest to seek revenge on the white whale that bit off his leg. Full of allegory and symbolism, Moby Dick is an epic tragedy of tremendous dramatic power and narrative drive. This large-scale adaptation, recorded in America, skillfully reproduces the unique mixture of adventure, myth, history, and philosophy in Melville's epic tale.
