Melville’s legendary seafaring tome about a maniacal captain’s obsessive quest for a mystical leviathan, famously name-checked in Bob Dylan’s 2017 Nobel Prize acceptance speech, unveils the raw essence of human madness. There are classics, and then there is Moby-Dick.
“It is precisely Moby-Dick’s forbidding reputation that has inspired artists, writers, performers and film-makers from Frank Stella to Jackson Pollock, Led Zeppelin to Laurie Anderson, Orson Welles, Sylvia Plath, Stanley Kubrick and Lynne Ramsay, as well as the makers of Tom and Jerry, and even The Simpsons…Once you do read it, it’s hard to let it go.” – The Guardian
Heads up: though this 172-year-old novel features men in love – with each other! – zero women are in sight. Oh, and the finale may (or may not) feature violence directed toward a (certain) whale.
