Meg Guroff of Washington, D.C. has alerted us to her excellent site, Power Moby-Dick, which we’ve now linked from our own Moby-Dick profile.
Power Moby-Dick adds helpful definitions and notes right alongside the full text of the book. So next to the famous opening, “Call me Ishmael,” we have the comment “Ishmael: A wanderer, the older son of the biblical Abraham.” And so on. It’s a big boost.
Her page of resources for Moby-Dick and Herman Melville is super-duper. For amusement she offers less relevant links, like one to this page matching a quote from Ahab to lyrics from Dr. Dre.
It’s slick work.
