Description

Nominada por los estadounidenses como una de las 100 mejores novelas en la serie de PBS The Great American Read.

A trav�s de este cl�sico, Melville logra convertir la historia de la caza de un cachalote en toda una met�fora sobre la condici�n humana y sus conflictos.

Moby Dick, la novela que William Faulkner hubiera querido escribir, va siempre acompa�ada del reconocimiento y el elogio que merece toda construcci�n narrativa impecable. La lucha del capit�n Ahab, su terrible obsesi�n y la m�tica persecuci�n de la enorme ballena ha traspasado fronteras, consiguiendo as� la indiscutible categor�a de obra maestra de la literatura universal.

Esta edici�n cuenta con la introducci�n del especialista y director del Departamento de Estudios Americanos, Andrew Delbanco, autor de Melville (2005), la biograf�a de referencia del autor de Moby Dick. Asimismo, incorpora una serie de ilustraciones tales como el mapa de la traves�a, un plano del ballenero Pequod y otras curiosidades que enriquecen la experiencia de la lectura y proyectan la imaginaci�n del lector.

�Pero t�, oh ballena, nadas con esa calma hechicera ante quien te ve por primera vez, despu�s de haber enga�ado y destruido a tantos hombres...�

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Moby-Dick is the story of Captain Ahab's quest to avenge the whale that 'reaped' his leg. The quest is an obsession and the novel is a diabolical study of how a man becomes a fanatic. But it is also a hymn to democracy. Bent as the crew is on Ahab s appalling crusade, it is equally the image of a co-operative community at work: all hands dependent on all hands, each individual responsible for the security of each. Among the crew is Ishmael, the novel's narrator, ordinary sailor, and extraordinary reader. Digressive, allusive, vulgar, transcendent, the story Ishmael tells is above all an education: in the practice of whaling, in the art of writing.
