Publisher Comments:

"Call me Ishmael" is the iconic opening line of Herman Melvilles classic American novel, Moby-Dick. Ishmael is a seaman aboard the whaling vessel, Pequod, under the vengeful captain, Ahab. Maniacally seeking retribution from the great white sperm whale called Moby-Dick — the whale responsible for the captains missing leg — Ahab leads the crew on a quest to kill the infamous beast. A fictional work based on actual events, Moby-Dick is a classic that has been enjoyed for generations and is now available as part of the Word Cloud Classic series, making it a stylish and affordable addition to any library.

About the Author

Herman Melville (1819–1891) was an American writer best known for the novel Moby-Dick. His first three books gained much contemporary attention, but after a fast-blooming literary success in the late 1840s, his popularity declined precipitously and never recovered during his lifetime.
