Google Doodle: 161st Anniversary Of Moby-Dick

Moby Dick Google Doodle

Today Google celebrates the 161st anniversary of the ever popular novel Moby-Dick with a brilliant Google Doodle. On the doodle you can see a bunch of fishermen and on the back you see Moby Dick. 
The plot of Moby-Dick (which is also known as The Whale) revolves around the escapades of sailor Ishmael, who sets off on a voyage on the "whaleship" Pequod. Captain Ahab is the captain of this ship and the purpose of his journey is to find Moby-Dick, so he can extract revenge.

Moby-Dick is a ferocious, enigmatic white sperm whale that had destroyed Ahab's boat and bit off his leg during a previous voyage. Among Ahab's crew is Ishmael, a young man undergoing a gruelling rite of passage and pursuing a different salvation. As the Pequod circles the globe like a latter-day Noah's Ark, so Moby Dick ranges and digresses through space and time, through mythologies, religions and philosophies.

Herman Melville was born on August 1, 1819 in New York City. Melville went to the Albany Academy, where he studied the classics. But his schooling was quite discontinuous. He also tried his hands at various jobs but nothing seemed to catch his fancy. However, things changed for this great novelist in 1841, when he set sail on the whaling ship Acushnet. Melville stayed at the Marquesas Islands with his friend Richard Tobias Greene, who provided him with the much needed information for his future novels.
