A Tale of a Whale: Reading Moby Dick [Jeff Encke]

All Levels | E.L. Doctorow once remarked in a lecture for the Library of Congress that American literature begins not with The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, as Ernest Hemingway claimed, but with Moby Dick. Whether you’ve reeled in Herman Melville’s literary leviathan already or want to test your sea legs reading it for the first time, this six-week passage is for you. We’ll consume the beast in equal parts, one each week, giving ourselves ample time to savor its stylistic ingenuity, psychological depth, and moral vision.
