Do you like graphic novels? Do you like to read the classics? Then, this Reading Club devoted to discussing the 19th century American classic, “Moby Dick” is for you.
Herman Melville’s classic tale of Ishmael, Captain Ahab, and the White Whale comes to life through stark drawings in this graphic novel adaptation. Ishmael, a young merchant marine, decides to embark with his friend Queequeg on a voyage on the whaling ship the Pequod, helmed by Captain Ahab. They soon discover that the strange captain’s true mission is to find and kill Moby Dick, a great white whale who tore off Ahab’s leg. Ahab’s quest for revenge, a quintessential case of man against nature and good against evil, remains an enduring story that has captivated readers for generations. In this edition, Denis Deprez’s haunting graphics set a dark, menacing tone for the narrative.
In two sessions will discuss the origins of the tale, the characteristics of the graphic novel and also will discuss the tale’s different symbolic meanings.
