A Book About Whales
A Book About Whales by Andrea Antinori. The whale in literature: the animal that swallowed Jonah in the Holy Bible and Melville’s whale symbolising the invincibility of nature over human fragility. But leaving aside predetermined roles, literary stereotypes and symbolic meanings, what do we really know about whales? What do they eat? In which seas do they live? And how many different kinds of whales are there?
