Herman Melville (1819-1891) and Moby-Dick (1851) : Dr Stephen Rogers

"Have you ever been fascinated by the story of Moby-Dick? Whether you have read it before or not, what better time could there be to take a closer look at this epic book than in the year of Herman Melville’s 200th Birthday. D. H. Lawrence thought it was ""one of the strangest and most wonderful books in the world,"" and his view has been endorsed by numerous writers, readers and critics, who have regarded it as one of the supreme achievements of American literature. "
