Moby Dick, vagy a Fehér Bálna


"A bálnavadászhajó és a fregatt volt az én Harvardom és Yale-em" - vallotta a skót-holland kereskedőcsalád sarja, Herman Melville, akinek apja tönkremenése és korai halála után kalandos ifjúság jutott osztályrészül: volt bolti segéd, banki alkalmazott, 18 éves korában hajósinasnak szegődött egy Angliába induló kereskedelmi hajóra, majd négy évvel később tengerésznek állt egy bálnavadászhajóra. Másfél év múlva megszökött, s végül az Egyesült Államok haditengerészetének kötelékébe lépett. Szolgálat közben minden szabadidejét olvasással töltötte, hazatérve kezdett írással foglalkozni. Az 1851-ben még The Whale - A bálna címen megjelent regénye, a Moby Dick, a bálnavadászat hőseposza prózában elbeszélve. Izgalmas kalandregény, egyszersmind mély bölcseleti mondanivaló hordozója: ember és természet drámai küzdelmének sokrétű szimbolikájú ábrázolása.

Confidence Man and Billy Budd


Life is a pic-nic en costume; one must take a part, assume a character, stand ready in a sensible way to play the fool'. In "The Confidence-Man", Melville's unnerving and hallucinatory satire on the American dream, a slippery trickster and master of disguise comes to swindle his fellow passengers - who themselves may also be con-men - aboard a Mississippi steamboat. "Billy Budd, Sailor", published after Melville's death in 1891, is a gripping allegory of good and evil, as an innocent man, pressed into service on a British man-of-war, is falsely accused of mutiny. Both these late works are animated with the dark genius of the greatest of American writers. This is 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


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.
