Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Wordsworth Classics covers a huge list of beloved works of literature in English and translations. This growing series is rigorously updated, with scholarly introductions and notes added to new titles.

Synopsis:

This work tells the story of an extremely cunning and fearsome whale which becomes the focus of fear and superstition among its pursuers. The one-legged Captain Ahab of the whaler Pequod takes the reader deeper and deeper into the realm of obsessive revenge and monomania.
