No, Queequeg! Don't do it!

Oxford University Press blog (yes they have a blog) has something special for Lisa B.:
"On November 14th, 1851 Herman Melville published Moby Dick, the classic tale of Captain Ahab's whale hunt." (OUPblog: This Day in History: Moby Dick is Published)


  1. Ouch. Every so often, I feel a twinge in my conscience that I haven't read this monument. Can't I just admire it from afar? Do I have to plunge my hands into the spermiceti? Do I?

  2. All hate the white whale. The evil white whale with his dead-blue eye.
