Power Moby Dick

Power Moby Dick

Power Moby Dick is an online annotated version of Herman Melville’s classic (in Japanese, the title is The White Whale (白鯨). It’s standard reading for many English-speaking high school and university students, but it’s a long and challenging read. This might help non-native speakers of English to tackle it, too. Maybe you could try one chapter a week over your spring break (and then summer break, winter break…)? It might also inspire you to create something similar for a work of classical Japanese literature that you’d like to introduce (in English!) to your classmates.

Here’s a screenshot from Chapter 1:
