Another post coming up soon about the only chapter really worth mentioning so far, the one where we finaly see Ahab and his lust for vengeance.
Today, I came across a weird reference to Moby Dick . It appears in Newsweek that author Jane Yolen likes this book.
Books: Jane Yolen
Updated: 11:23 AM ET May 24,
The author of more than 280 books, Yolen, a writer of folklore fantasy
and children's literature, is best known for her Holocaust novella "The Devil's
Arithmetic." Her latest work, "Naming Liberty," tells the story of a Russian
girl and the designer of the Statue of Liberty.
My Five Most Important Books
1. "Moby-Dick" by Herman Melville. It's a book I reread every 10 years,
which is coming up again. I even love the whale parts.
To be honest, that isn't much of a reason to me.
This book keeps surfacing in the oddest places. A prominent author has this listed as her most important book of all time? I must dive into this mystery.
[On another note, I find it funny that Newsweek is using quotation marks for book titles. WTF?]
