Why should you read "Moby Dick"? - Sascha Morrell to learn about the great adventure and suspense.
Dive into Herman Melville’s classic novel “Moby Dick,” the story of Captain Ahab’s hunt for revenge against the white whale who bit off his leg.
A mountain separating two lakes. A room papered floor to ceiling with bridal satins. The lid of an immense snuffbox. These seemingly unrelated images take us on a tour of a sperm whale’s head in Herman Melville’s "Moby Dick." Though the book features pirates, typhoons, high-speed chases, and giant squid, it’s anything but a conventional seafaring adventure. Sascha Morrell digs into the classic novel.
