In Depth 29/Sep/2010In Moby-Dick, Herman Melville captured the American whaling industry at its peak, with momentous changes ahead.

Wagner's interpretation of Melville's tale connects directly with today's world, even with today's headlines. Readers concerned with the American economic experience and our relationship with the earth will find much to ponder in Wagner's illumination of the parallels between Melville's time and ours.
