IN THE HEART OF THE SEA: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex

The inspiration for the climatic scene in Melville's Moby Dick, the ordeal of the whaleship Essex was an event as mythic in the 19th century as the Titanic disaster was in the 20th. The Essex, 15 months out of Nantucket, was rammed and sunk by an enraged sperm whale. Photos.
