Its famous opening line, "Call me Ishmael," dramatic in its stark

simplicity, begins an epic that is widely regarded as the greatest novel

ever written by an American. Labeled variously a realistic story of

whaling, a romance of unusual adventure and eccentric characters, a

symbolic allegory, and a drama of heroic conflict, Moby Dick is first and

foremost a great story. It has both the humor and poignancy of a simple sea

ballad, as well as the depth and universality of a grand odyssey. When

Melville's father died in 1832, the young man's financial security went

too. For a while he turned to school-mastering and clerking, but failed to

make a sustainable income. In 1840 he signed up on the whaler, Acushnet,

out of New Bedford, Massachusetts. He was just 21. A whaler's life turned

out to be both arduous and dangerous, and in 1842, Melville deserted ship.

Out of this experience and a wealth of printed sources, Melville crafted

his masterpiece. 18 unabridged CDs comprising 21 Hours of content.
