Who was Moby Dick?

Moby Dick was a great white whale in the famous novel titled Moby Dick, written by Herman Melville between 1850 – 1853.

Moby Dick was a monster among monsters, the terror of the deep. Whalers had hunted him for years, and all had come off second-best in the battle. Captain Ahab was one of those who had encountered him, and lost. Moby Dick had won by a leg—one of Ahab’s.

As master of the Pequod, Ahab scours the oceans for his deadly eighty-ton enemy, and the log of his voyage makes up an epic of the sea – thrilling, chilling, unforgettable.
