The epic story of Captain Ahab's incredible quest for the elusive great whale is widely regarded as the Great American Novel. Herman Melville's tale follows Ishmael, a man who yearns for and lives for the sea ("with a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship"), and it is through Ishmael's insight and consciousness that the narrative takes place. Melville's own experiences as a sailor provided a detailed background on the whaling industry and spawned the success and acclaim of this literary masterpiece.
