Hunting for Moby Dick

I have decided to join Captain Ahab in search for the mysterious white whale. I imagine it will take me at least a month or two to make my way through it. Hence you may expect less activity on Eclectic Orthodoxy for the rest of the summer.  Two of our readers have accepted invitations to write articles for us. I hope they’ll be able to send me something soon (hint, hint).

And who knows, I may decide to send back reports of my voyage. Hmm, that’s an idea. I’m not disappearing completely. Just taking a break within the world of Herman Melville.

    An excellent work! My second favorite work of all time.


  2. I’d order a copy myself and join you but I made promise to read War and Peace.

    Is the “mysterious white whale” a metaphor for “theosis”?

    Godspeed your reading, Father. It just so happens that I finished reading Moby Dick yesterday, as part of the MFA I’m working on. As for the essay, it’s coming, I swear. I’m somewhat unanticipatedly swamped in work for said MFA at the moment. But what great timing with Moby Dick. I’ll promise to rein myself in when you post on it. Can’t wait to see your take on the book.

    Perhaps you would enjoy reading “In The Heart of the Sea” by Nathaniel Philbrick afterwards, telling the true events that inspired Melville’s story. It’s just as riveting.


  6. Perhaps that will give me a chance to catch up 🙂
