About the Author: Herman Melville

Herman Melville was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist, and poet. His first two books gained much attention, though they were not bestsellers, and his popularity declined precipitously only a few years later. By the time of his death he had been almost completely forgotten, but his longest novel, Moby-Dick — largely considered a failure during his lifetime, and most responsible for Melville's fall from favor with the reading public — was rediscovered in the 20th century as one of the chief literary masterpieces of both American and world literature.

Herman Melville's classic tale of Ishmael, Captain Ahab, and the White Whale comes to life through stark drawings in this graphic novel adaptation. Ishmael, a young merchant marine, decides to embark with his friend Queequeg on a voyage on the whaling ship the "Pequod," helmed by Captain Ahab. They soon discover that the strange captain's true mission is to find and kill Moby Dick, a great white whale who tore off Ahab's leg. Ahab's quest for revenge, a quintessential case of man against nature and good against evil, remains an enduring story that has captivated readers for generations. In this edition, Denis Deprez's haunting graphics set a dark, menacing tone for the narrative. "La historia clasica de Herman Melville de Ismael, el capitan Ahab y la ballena blanca cobra vida a traves de dibujos severos en esta adaptacion grafica. Ismael, un joven marino mercante, decide embarcarse junto con su amigo Queequeg en un viaje en el barco ballenero "Pequod," dirigido por el capitan Ahab. Pronto descubren que la verdadera mision del extrano capitan es encontrar y matar a Moby Dick, una gran ballena blanca que le arranco la pierna a Ahab. Su busqueda de venganza, un caso por excelencia del hombre contra la naturaleza y del bien contra el mal, sigue siendo una historia perdurable que ha cautivado a los lectores por generaciones. En esta edicion, los graficos inquietantes de Denis Deprez crean un tono oscuro y amenazante para la narrativa."
