It's all true for Moby-Dick.
He's a killer, he's a fury, he's an angel of hell.
Why if the white whale could talk he'd talk like Ahab.'
Centre of a whaling industry that transformed blubber into the oils and candles that lit the world.
It's there that a schoolmaster called Ishmael arrives to ship on a whale-boat.
He enrols under Ahab, Captain of the Pequod – a man bent on destroying the white whale that lost him his leg.
Certain the destruction of his nemesis will slake his thirst; Ahab's single-minded pursuit of Moby-Dick consumes Ishmael, the crew and the Pequod itself.
The spirit and atmosphere of Herman Melville's masterpiece – romantic, ambiguous, characterful and rich with allegory – is captured.
