Description

A través de este clásico, Melville logra convertir la historia de la caza de un cachalote en toda una metáfora sobre la condición humana y sus conflictos.

Moby Dick, la novela que William Faulkner hubiera querido escribir, va siempre acompañada del reconocimiento y el elogio que merece toda construcción narrativa impecable. La lucha del capitán Ahab, su terrible obsesión y la mítica persecución de la enorme ballena ha traspasado fronteras, consiguiendo así la indiscutible categoría de obra maestra de la literatura universal.

Esta edición cuenta con la introducción del especialista y director del Departamento de Estudios Americanos, Andrew Delbanco, autor de Melville (2005), la biografía de referencia del autor de Moby Dick. Asimismo, incorpora una serie de ilustraciones tales como el mapa de la travesía, un plano del ballenero Pequod y otras curiosidades que enriquecen la experiencia de la lectura y proyectan la imaginación del lector.

«Pero tú, oh ballena, nadas con esa calma hechicera ante quien te ve por primera vez, después de haber engañado 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.
