In 1851, Herman Melville's novel Moby-Dick was published. Melville's allegorical story of humankind's search for meaning, as chronicled through the adventures of the whaling ship Pequod, was initially met with poor reviews, but would go on to become a classic of American literature. Read about the terrifying, real-life whale-of-a-tale that inspired Captain Ahab's fictional search.
