A crew of whalers sets out in pursuit of a fierce white whale. Their names ring through the canon of American literature: Ishmael, the narrator; Queequeg, a South Seas harpooner; Starbuck, the sober and serious chief mate; and above all Captain Ahab, part Faust and part Job, leading them to the ends of the earth-and the destiny he will share with his foe. In Moby-Dick, Herman Melville set out to write "a mighty book" on "a mighty theme." As the book, his sixth, neared completion he wrote to Nathaniel Hawthorne about the dilemma he found himself caught in: "What I feel most moved to write, that is banned-it will not pay. Yet, altogether, write the 'other' way I cannot. So the product is a final hash, and all my books are botches."
