    Moby Dick

    Does anyone know of a version of Moby Dick that is footnoted (or endnoted) That can help to explain some of the language that is esoteric to the industry, period terminology, and topical allisions etc.

    The Norton Critical edition has footnotes, background texts, etc. The Penguin edition has good endnotes, as well as maps, pictures of the ship, a glossary, etc. in the back. Have fun!

    I used the Norton Critical Edition and it was copiously annotated. I really feel I wouldn't have appreciated the novel as much without the footnotes and essays.
