Great Illustrated Melville

23 Mar

Look what I have!

When I first started Moby-Dick, I thought I might need a little help, so I went right to my children’s school library where I found the Great Illustrated Classics version.  Ismael quickly drew me in and before I knew it, I had read several chapters.

But since this is a DIY master’s class, I figured an abridged version might not make the cut.  I’m back to reading the real deal and enjoying it so far.  Although I’m kind of missing the illustrations.

    Chapter 28 and I finally get to meet Captain Ahab – talk about the clever way the author builds suspense! Ishmael’ first reaction…”foreboding shivers ran over me.” And that’s exactly the way I began to feel. What a compelling chapter of description and what a strange and complicated man. The scar that appears from his grey hairs, the bone leg, speaking not a word but yet at the end of the chapter, the faint blossom of a look, etc. Wow! Just think how much Melville wrote about one eerie captain!
