More on Moby Dick:

“One of the strangest and most wonderful books in the world.” —D. H. Lawrence “‘Moby-Dick’ is the book which I put down with the unqualified thought, ‘I wish I had written that’…” —William Faulkner “What a book Melville has written! It gives me an idea of much greater power than his preceding ones. It hardly seemed to me that the review of it, in the ‘Literary World’, did justice to its best points.” —Nathaniel Hawthorne “The greatest novel in American literature.” —Elizabeth Hardwick “‘Moby-Dick’ is more than the greatest American novel ever written; it is a metaphysical survival manual — the best guidebook there is for a literate man or woman facing an impenetrable unknown: the future of civilization in this storm-tossed 21st century.” —Nathaniel Philbrick
