Mardi, and a Voyage Thither (Vols. I & II)

Publisher: New Canadian Library
A strange but delightful gem in Herman Melville’s oeuvre.
 
When the unnamed narrator discovers that the captain of the whaling ship he has enlisted on intends to extend their heretofore-unsuccessful voyage indefinitely, he and a friend steal away under the cover of darkness in search of land in the South Pacific. What follows is a winding tale of adventure that bridges the gap between Melville’s earlier, mostly autobiographical work, and his later, heavily philosophical fiction (a la Moby-Dick).
