Which incited me to begin my umpteenth re-read of Moby Dick - which, along with H2G2, is my most re-read book. I discover new bits of fun & profundity with every read, and realize just how funny this book is - as well as deeply human. The language can soar & fly, as well as bore you to tears. I truly enjoy each encounter with this watery world.
I took an American Lit class back when i was in undergrad at UNC that was actually just us spending an entire semester on Moby Dick. I enjoyed it rather a lot more than my classmates.
