In particular: The 34th edition Moby-Dick Marathon, which began yesterday, ends today at the Mystic Seaport Museum in Connecticut. It’s a full whale book read: “Here at the Mystic Seaport Museum, our reading marathon is a community event that relies on visitor participation to keep the words flowing and the pages turning around the clock. participants are invited to read a chapter or two (or more!) but are also invited to sit and listen, allowing the beauty of the language to flow over them. The museum has programmed all sorts of activities to alleviate the – come on, let’s face it – torture of certain passages, as sublime as others are. At least it’s not Tuesday. Once again: who dared to hold a Tuesday marathon? Even more than John Updike’s last five novels, it is undoubtedly the most unreadable book by a great American writer since John Winthrop. The Mystic Museum isn’t Melville’s only marathon runner. See below.
