《白鲸》于1851年发表,是一篇海洋题材的小说,小说描写了亚哈船长为了追逐并杀死白鲸(实为白色抹香鲸)莫比·迪克,最终与白鲸同归于尽的故事。故事营造了一种让人置身海上航行、随时遭遇各种危险甚至是死亡的氛围,是作者的代表作。

捕鲸船“裴廊德”号船长亚哈,在一次捕鲸过程中,被凶残聪明的白鲸莫比·迪克咬掉了一条腿,因此他满怀复仇之念,一心想追捕这条白鲸,竟至失去理性,变成一个独断独行的偏热症狂。他的船几乎兜遍了全世界经历辗转,终于与莫比·迪克遭遇。经过三天追踪,他用鱼叉击中白鲸,但船被白鲸撞破,亚哈被鱼叉上的绳子缠住,掉入海中。全船人落海,只有水手以实玛利(《圣经》中人名,意为被遗弃的人)一人得救。

Moby Dick; or, The Whale (1851) is a novel by Herman Melville considered an outstanding work of Romanticism and the American Renaissance. Ishmael narrates the monomaniacal quest of Ahab, captain of the whaler Pequod, for revenge on Moby Dick, a white whale which on a previous voyage destroyed Ahab's ship and severed his leg at the knee. Although the novel was a commercial failure and out of print at the time of the author's death in 1891, its reputation as a Great American Novel grew during the twentieth century.

赫尔曼·梅尔维尔(1819-1891),19世纪美国最伟大的小说家、散文家和诗人之一,与纳撒尼尔·霍桑齐名,梅尔维尔生前没有引起应有的重视,在22世纪二十年代声名鹊起,被普遍认为是美国文学的巅峰人物之一。 英国作家毛姆认为他的《白鲸》是世界十大文学名著之一,其文学史地位更在马克·吐温等人之上。梅尔维尔也被誉为美国的“莎士比亚”。

Herman Melville(August 1, 1819 – September 28, 1891) was an American novelist, writer of short stories, and poet from the American Renaissance period. The bulk of his writings was published between 1846 and 1857. Best known for his sea adventure Typee (1846) and his whaling novel Moby-Dick (1853), he was almost forgotten during the last thirty years of his life.

There now is your insular city of the Manhattoes, belted round by wharves as Indian isles by coral reefs—commerce surrounds it with her surf. Right and left, the streets take you waterward. Its extreme downtown is the battery, where that noble mole is washed by waves, and cooled by breezes, which a few hours previous were out of sight of land. Look at the crowds of water-gazers there.
