Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Arguably Herman Melville's greatest work, and hailed as a classic American novel, Moby Dick tells the tale of one man's fatal obsession and his willingness to sacrifice his life and that of his crew to achieve his goal. The story follows the fortunes of Captain Ahab and the culturally and spiritually diverse crew of the Pequod, a 19th century whaling ship. The Pequod is on its last voyage out of New Bedford, Mass, in pursuit of Moby Dick, the great white whale which has been Ahab's obsessional quarry and bitter adversary for many years. Narrated by sole survivor Ishmael, the tale forms a complex fictional fusion, combining a wealth of literary symbolism, hidden meaning and philosophical debate with adventure narrative and a detailed historical account of the 19th century whaling trade. --Emily Lowson

Von Tristram Shandy TOP 500 REZENSENT VINE-PRODUKTTESTER
Format:Taschenbuch
Thus begins Chapter 82 of Melville's masterpiece "Moby-Dick", where Ishmael tries to give the reader some understanding of the history and meaningfulness of whaling. The selfsame motto also seems to apply to the composition of "Moby-Dick", because in terms of richness and intricacy it ranges on the same level as Sterne's "Tristram Shandy" or the works of James Joyce.

Whosoever simply expects a gripping, speedy tale of an adventurous whale-hunt will surely be disappointed with "Moby-Dick", since the actual fight between Ahab and the White Whale takes place on the last 35 of 630 pages, and the plot-line at times is hardly discernible what with long passages on the species of whales, on the history of whaling and on the processes of hunting, killing and exploiting the whales and with interior monologues of the characters involved. So if you are bent on tension and action merely, you had better watch the excellent film adaption of the novel starring Gregory Peck as monomanic Ahab. Apart from that "Moby-Dick" falls short of basic narrative conventions in that the first person narrator Ishmael, who seems to be about to tell of story about himself at the beginning, is more and more fading out of the tale, finally taking on the character of an omniscient narrator, who knows the innermost thoughts of Ahab and other crew members, and of a commentator. Then there are long passages where seamen suddenly talk as though there were imbued with Shakespearean spirit and where the whole novel takes on the character of a play.

What kind of botch is that, you may asked dismayed. The answer is that "Moby-Dick" is a brilliant experiment in language, which becomes clear when you read some of its chapters aloud to yourself. Start with Father Mapple's sermon on Jonah here, and you will see what I mean.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Inflated Melville 7. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I am one of those who firmly believes that Melville's non-fiction is superior to his fiction. "Typee" and "Omoo" are more to my taste. "Moby Dick" contains any number of memorable characters, scenes and philosohpical speculations, but, unconfined by the autobiographical incidents that formed his early work, Melville's mind and his syntax here ramble all over the place. It's interesting to note that this novel was resurrected from obscurity by Hollywood in the 1920's when it was adapted as a vehicle for John Barrymore.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow....Superb! A breathtaking novel...really... 19. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
When you read the book you'll find passages that are so perfectly written they easily rival shakespeare in their power. The book is like a poem in so many ways...it is very poetic...I did a critical review on Ahab, about what the main critics thought about him, and that gave me an even more greater respect for Melville. Ahab is an incrediable character---possibly the greatest and most complex in literature. He fights against fate and/or God.....he wants to assert himself--he wants to be in control...instead of being a thing or object, he wants to be in control...and so he trys to trump himself as a God....His fight to assert himself past his humanity--so he is more then just a man--is seen in everybody. He wishes he were something more then he is. But he keeps having to deal witht the fact that he is mortal...In the end, Ahab is seen really as a tragic hero...a good guy sorta...The reader starts to root for him. No movie can even come close to capturing the power of the book...it is too poetic and philosophical...Melville's ramblings in the middle of the book can seem tedious but add to the book greatly. They give the book so much depth in which to look at it...the world is seen as an ocean...on the ship are the earth's inhabitiants....they all try to figure out the purpose of existence, but with no shore (or landmarks) in sight, they all shoot from the hip, and each one's personnel view about life is as good as someone elses since there is no roadmap (very Hamlet like). Ahab's view of the whale as being the transcendese (sp--who cares) of evil is as good as Starbuck believing the whale is a dumb animal. The Doubloon in my eyes is one of the greatest chapters in the book.... Lesen Sie weiter... ›

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great perspectives of a troubled genius 31. Oktober 1998
Format:Taschenbuch
Most readers of Moby Dick seem to praise it for the wrong reasons and some miss the boat completely.
Criticize all you want of Melville's scientific inaccuracy, wandering themes, or even his improper punctuation. The guy wrote this thing in a year - not enough time to refine it, and it was a book he knew would not sell.
Underneath a mess of useless whaling information and Ishmael's rambling are ideas and questions that most people don't dare think about. Unlike Charles Darwin, Galileo or the fearless Ahab, Melville hid safely behind his metaphors and guided the careful readers to draw their own conclusions without completely leading the way.
Let me explain.
While to Ishmael, Moby Dick is nature's wonder and to Starbuck is just a whale, to Ahab Moby Dick is God, with his infinite power.
There are some disturbing things in the universe begging for an explaination, such as why one person is rewarded with happyness while another punished in suffering. There are feel-good answers, like the idea that the score will be evened in the afterlife and there are humble answers, like the book of Job, which suggests that man has no right to complain or question God. Melville's Ahab takes this to another level when he asks why man needs to be God's puppets. Ahab is insulted by God's creation of man, letting man live in suffering, "with half a heart and half a lung".
The bewildered God-fearing masses will not comprehend the depth Melville trys to take them. This most important theme was written for the pursuit of truth, not happyness. This book is not for everyone, and a lot of chapters are better off skipped, but those with enough empathy for Melville will find an emotional and intellectual adventure.
