"Moby Dick (1851) is an epic tale of the conflict between man and his fate.

Melville's extraordinary narrative defies c1assification: it teems with ideas and imagery and the passion of its author."--Jacket

8 editions published between 1970 and 2000 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Long before penning Moby-Dick, which many regard as the quintessential American novel, author Herman Melville was captivated by life on the open sea. White Jacket adopts a different perspective, focusing on the brutal treatment that many sailors received at the hands of their superiors. In particular, it has been noted that this novel proved to be instrumental in banning the practice of flogging in several branches of the U.S. military

Sea voyages and the vagaries of life on a ship are constant themes in the work of Herman Melville.
