Moby Dick is the masterpiece of American author Herman Melville. His early novels were based on his experience as a sailor, and the theme of the sea are his works Typee, a cannibal Eden (1846), Omoo (1847), Mardi (1849) and Redburn (1849).
His early novels quickly achieved great popularity and opened the doors of fame and success, but a fire in the workshops of her editor caused an economic downturn that forced him to work in the office in New York.
In 1851 he wrote Moby Dick and was dedicated to his friend Nathaniel Hawthorne. In this work, Melville introduced ethical and philosophical reflections that are also expressed in Pierre or the Ambiguities (1852), a dark allegorical exploration of the nature of evil.
The central theme of Moby Dick is the conflict between Captain Ahab, the whaler Pequod pattern, and the great white whale that had torn his right leg at the knee. Ahab, eager for revenge, blinded by his monomania, is released with all hands in a desperate search for his enemy.
