  • I don't know how many people have even read it IN America these days, let alone abroad. Too many illiterate kids in school.

    I had to read it for my English class last year. Written by Herman Melville as an allegory, known as America's only epic, etc. etc.

  • The translations, which come out in other languages as "Really Big Scary Richard" have hurt it's sales somewhat.

  • If you watch American tv shows/movies, it's impossible to not have heard of Moby Dick.
