Product Overview

Melville''s continuing adventures in the South Seas?now for the first time in Penguin Classics

Following the commercial and critical success of "Typee," Herman Melville continued his series of South Sea adventure-romances with "Omoo." Named after the Polynesian term for a rover, or someone who roams from island to island, "Omoo" chronicles the tumultuous events aboard a South Sea whaling vessel and is based on Melville''s personal experiences as a crew member on a ship sailing the Pacific. From recruiting among the natives for sailors to handling deserters and even mutiny, Melville gives a first-person account of life as a sailor during the nineteenth century filled with colorful characters and vivid descriptions of the far-flung locales of Polynesia.
