  • Want to read critical reviews of Moby Dick?
  • Looking for published articles about Melville's works?
How Lucky Can You Get?
The library subscribes to several databases that offer critical essays, explanations, and discussions of Melville's works (i.e.Literature Criticism Online, Gale Literary Database,  JSTOR, Project Muse, etc.).  Plus, you can use the library's Discovery tool to simultaneously search most of the library's databases.
Just go to the library's database page, choose a database (use your NTNET login when off-campus), and search for Melville and/or his works.  You're sure to find plenty that interests you.

If all these opportunities aren't enough to satisfy your Moby Dick cravings, you can listen to the novel online with Librivox's streaming audiobook.
