The Penguin English Library Edition of Moby-Dick by Herman Melville

'The frail gunwales bent in, collapsed, and snapped, as both jaws, like an enormous shears, sliding further aft, bit the craft completely in twain...'

Moby-Dick is one of the most expansive feats of imagination in the whole of literature: the mad, raging, Shakespearean tale of Captain Ahab's insane quest to kill a giant white whale that has taken his leg, and upon which he has sworn vengeance, at any cost. A creation unlike any other, this is an epic story of fatal monomania and the deepest dreams and obsessions of mankind.

The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

“Moby-Dick”

This took me a while. I liked it, I liked its depth and how epic it was but it was certainly hard work!
I was interested to read about all its digressions but it took a good deal of will power and I think that was... More

“Cover discrepancy”

I bought this as a gift, hoping it would be the same version (i.e cover) as my own Everyman's Library copy, which has a classic white front without embellishment. Unfortunately, the cover on the Waterstone's... More
