When I’m teaching Moby-Dick, I generally pose this question to my students at the appropriate moment: “What color is the white whale … really”?
“Moby Dick” is read by writer Blake Morrison and illustrated with a photograph of Judy Chicago’s Rainbow Warrior (Greenpeace) (Prismacolor on rag paper, 24” x 24”; © Judy Chicago, 1980). The photograph is © Donald Woodman.
The “Big Read” is asking its listeners to donate to the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Fund. Click here for more information.
