"Call me Ishmael." So begins the famous opening chapter of Moby-Dick; or, The Whale. Young sailor Ishmael is hired as a crew member of a whaler named Pequod, captained by a man named Ahab. In between lengthy chapters on whale biology and descriptions of the crew and the whaling trade, readers are slowly introduced to a captivating tale. Ahab is out for revenge on the great white whale that stole his leg, leaving him with a whale-bone prosthesis and a withering hatred for the beast. Known as Moby Dick, the whale is infamous for his encounters and escapes with whale ships, and Ahab offers a gold coin, nailed to the Pequod's mast, as a reward for whoever sights him first. Beginning on a cold Christmas morning, the crew embarks on a journey to find the whale and make their fortunes. An exciting staple of American literature, Moby-Dick is a must-read for anyone interested in the classics. Herman Melville was inspired to write Moby Dick by the 1821 biographical account Narrative of the Most Extraordinary and Distressing Shipwreck of the Whale-ship Essex, which in turn inspired the 2000 novel and 2015 movie, In the Heart of the Sea.

Moby-Dick; or, The Whale is a novel by Herman Melville, first published in 1851. It is considered to be one of the Great American Novels. The story tells the adventures of wandering sailor Ishmael, and his voyage on the whaleship Pequod, commanded by Captain Ahab. Ishmael soon learns that Ahab has one purpose on this voyage: to seek out Moby Dick, a ferocious, enigmatic white sperm whale. In a previous encounter, the whale destroyed Ahab's boat and bit off his leg, which now drives Ahab to take revenge. In Moby-Dick, Melville employs stylized language, symbolism, and metaphor to explore numerous complex themes. Through the journey of the main characters, the concepts of class and social status, good and evil, and the existence of God are all examined, as the main characters speculate upon their personal beliefs and their places in the universe. The narrator's reflections, along with his descriptions of a sailor's life aboard a whaling ship, are woven into the narrative along with Shakespearean literary devices, such as stage directions, extended soliloquies, and asides. The book portrays destructive obsession and monomania, as well as the assumption of anthropomorphism. Moby-Dick has been classified as American Romanticism. It was first published by Richard Bentley in London on October 18, 1851, in an expurgated three-volume edition titled The Whale, and weeks later as a single volume, by New York City publisher Harper and Brothers as Moby-Dick; or, The Whale on November 14, 1851. The book initially received mixed reviews, but is now considered part of the Western canon, and at the center of the canon of American novels. Moby-Dick begins with the line "Call me Ishmael." According to the American Book Review's rating in 2011, this is one of the most recognizable opening lines in Western literature.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Linguistik, Note: 1,3, Universität Duisburg-Essen, Veranstaltung: Herman Melville: Moby-Dick, 18 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Herman Melvilles Roman Moby-Dick ist in heutiger Zeit eines der bekanntesten Hauptwerke der amerikanischen Literatur. Der Roman wurde nicht nur mehrmals sowohl als Spielfilm als auch als Zeichentrickfilm und Kinderserie verfilmt, sondern man findet den legendären weißen Wal und den einbeinigen Captain Ahab auch auf unzähligen Illustrationen, Karikaturen in Zeitungen und Zeitschriften und sogar als Spielzeugfigur. Diesen späten und teilweise zweifelhaften Ruhm konnte Herman Melville (1819-1891) nicht mehr selbst erleben. Zu seinen Lebzeiten war sein Roman nämlich höchst umstritten und wurde von vielen Lesern nicht verstanden. Im Gegensatz zu seinen vorherigen Werken, wie die Abenteurergeschichten Redburn und White Jacket, blieb der kommerzielle Erfolg lange Zeit aus. Doch damit hatte Melville gerechnet, wie er seinem Schriftstellerkollegen und guten Freund Nathaniel Hawthorne in einem Brief mitteilte: „What I feel most moved to write that is banned --it will not pay. Yet altogether write the othe r way, I cannot." Trotzdem trafen ihn die negativen Reaktionen – besonders die der britischen Kritiker – sehr hart, denn als er sich gegen einen kommerziellen Erfolg entschied (den er gut hätte gebrauchen können), hoffte er auf Anerkennung aus Literaturkreisen und war von der Ablehnung zutiefst enttäuscht. Allen voran verdross ihn der am 25. Oktober 1851 erschienene Artikel im Athenaeum von Henry Fothergill Chorley, in dem es heißt: "An ill-compounded mixture of romance and matter of fact, Mr. Melville has to thank himself only if his horrors and heroics are flung aside by the general reader as so much trash belonging to the worst school of Bedlam literature,--since he seems not so much unable to learn as disdainful of learning the craft of an artist." Diese Kritik und eine weitere negative Bewertung am selben Tage im Spectator setzen Melvilles Selbstbewusstsein stark zu. „From these terrific blows the supersensitive Melville may never have completely recovered.” Dabei gab es vor allem in Amerika auch eine sehr positive Resonanz. Besonders hervorzuheben ist die Kritik von James Watson Webb, dem Editor und Inhaber des Courier and New York Enquirer, welcher Moby-Dick als Melvilles besten Roman und einflussreiches Werk der amerikanischen Literaturlandschaft einstufte.

Das Werk "Moby-Dick; oder: Der Wal" (englisch "Moby-Dick; or, The Whale") ist ein 1851 in London und New York erschienener Roman von Herman Melville. Das erzählerische Rückgrat des Romans ist die schicksalhafte Fahrt des Walfangschiffes "Pequod", dessen Kapitän Ahab mit blindem Hass den weißen Pottwal Moby Dick jagt, der ihm ein Bein abgerissen hat. Entlang dieses erzählerischen Fadens, der knapp die Hälfte des Romans ausmacht, reiht Melville zahlreiche philosophische, wissenschaftliche, kunstgeschichtliche und mythologische Exkurse, zu denen noch viele subjektive, mal lyrische, mal auch ironische Betrachtungen des Autors kommen. In diesem Rahmen wird auch die Welt des Walfangs im 18. und 19. Jahrhundert detailreich dargestellt. Melville widmete seinen Roman "Moby-Dick" dem befreundeten Schriftsteller Nathaniel Hawthorne.
