Moby Dick

176 years ago today the author and poet Herman Melville started his journey to the South Seas on the whaler Acushnet.   He later took part in a mutiny, was imprisoned in Tahiti, escaped and resumed his travels.   In 1851 Moby Dick was published.   This work is reviewed from a socialist perspective here
