A literary classic that wasn't recognized for its merits until decades after its publication, Herman Melville's Moby-Dick tells the tale of a whaling ship and its crew, who are carried progressively further out to sea by the fiery Captain Ahab. Obsessed with killing the massive whale, which had previously bitten off Ahab's leg, the seasoned seafarer steers his ship to confront the creature, while the rest of the shipmates, including the young narrator, Ishmael, and the harpoon expert, Queequeg, must contend with their increasingly dire journey. The book invariably lands on any short list of the greatest American novels.

"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.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 2,0, Universitat Bielefeld (Fakultat fur Linguistik und Literaturwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Seminar Grundkurs 2: A Survey of American Literature," 16 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Diese Arbeit enthalt Zitate in englischer Sprache., Abstract: Herman Melvilles Moby Dick ist ein Klassiker der Weltliteratur. Einzuordnen ist dieser Roman in die Zeit von ca. 1800 - 1865, die Zeit der amerikanischen Renaissance. Neben anderen grossen Schriftstellern seiner Zeit wie Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edgar Allan Poe oder Walt Whitman ist Herman Melville heute zu Recht eine bedeutende Grosse der amerikanischen Literatur. Der vorliegende Roman, der 1851 zum ersten Mal veroffentlicht wurde, handelt von einem jungen Mann (Ismael), der auf einem Walfanger (die Pequod) anheuert. Schon bald stellt er fest, dass dort nicht alles mit rechten Dingen zugeht. Der Kapitan dieses Schiffes (Ahab) ist namlich besessen von seiner personlichen Suche nach einem gigantischen Weissen Wal (Moby Dick), der ihn schon einmal schwer verletzt hat. Selbst bei oberflachlichem Lesen dieses Romans ist die Nahe zu einem weiteren Klassiker der Weltliteratur, namlich der Bibel, nicht zu ubersehen. Darum mochte ich in dieser Hausarbeit die Protagonisten Ismael und Ahab aus theologischer Sicht analysieren und sie mit der jeweiligen biblischen Person vergleichen. Ich werde zeigen, dass Ubereinstimmungen (Parallelen) zu finden, aber auch Abweichungen nicht zu ubersehen sind, die durch Melvilles kunstlerische Freiheit eingearbeitet wurden. Ich mochte mich in dieser Hausarbeit aufgrund ihrer Kurze auf je vier Parallelen der jeweiligen Person beschranken, obwohl weitaus mehr vorhanden sind. Davor mochte ich jedoch kurz auf die Bibelfestigkeit Melvilles eingehen. Ziel des Kapitels soll nicht sein einen vollstandigen Lebenslauf Melvilles darzulegen, sondern es soll in erster Linie eine kleine Ansammlung der biograph"
