I’m reading the famous story of Captain Ahab and the white whale.
This masterwork for decades inspired films, radio dramas, cartoons, comic books, a television mini-series, songs, a couple of heavy metal albums, a musical, a music video and a rap rendition.

“Think not, is my eleventh commandment; and sleep when you can, is my twelfth.”
“O Nature, and O soul of man! how far beyond all utterance are your linked analogies; not the smallest atom stirs or lives on matter, but has its cunning duplicate in mind.”
― Herman Melville, Moby-Dick; or, The Whale
