Call me Ishmael: A Study of Melville

£14.99

Product description

Call me Ishmael is a case study of Herman Melville's great novel 'Moby Dick'. First published in 1947, this acknowledged classic of American literary criticism explores the influences—especially Shakespearean ones—on Melville's writing of Moby-Dick. It studies the man himself and events that might have inspired the work.

The softback book, with a jacket, is in very good condition; some dust soiling to the the text block edge and light foxing specks on the top edge. Spine slightly discoloured. A former owners name plus date is written neatly in black ink at the top of the front free end paper.
