Ahab’s Rolling Sea by Richard King Reviewed in The American Scholar

SEA Semester

by Richard King, SEA Visiting Associate Professor, Maritime History and Literature 
"Pursuing the White Whale, A briny exploration of Melville’s greatest work"
By William Howarth
The American Scholar

"Since most Melville criticism occurs safely in drydock, his ocean life has long deserved a responsible re-examination. Richard J.
