Moby-Dick; or, The Whale is a novel written by Herman Melville and first published in 1851.

The story is narrated by Ismael, a young man with experience in the merchant navy, who decides that his next trip will be on a whaler, and sets off on this journey to Nantucket, Massachusetts, an island known for its whaling industry. Ismael signs up with a harpooner he meets there on the whaler Pequod, with a crew of different nationalities and races.

Ahab is the wacky captain of a quirky whaling crew aboard the Pequod, who are out for revenge against the white whale named Moby Dick. In an earlier capture attempt, the whale severed Ahab's leg, consuming the eccentric captain in hatred and an obsession to hunt it.

However, the task they embark on is quite dangerous and the captain's tyranny and hatred blinds him completely, unable to see the great danger he is putting both the ship and the crew.

We are facing a confrontation between man and nature, including the symbolism of long life for the white whale.
