Call Me Melville is Berkshire County's summer-long online community reading of Herman Melville's "Moby-Dick," which he wrote in Pittsfield. Read along -- a chapter a day for 135 days -- with your friends and neighbors through this epic at http://www.powermobydick.com, the annotated novel online.
Today, the Call Me Melville reading is Chapter 6, "The Street."
The first line: "If I had been astonished at first catching a glimpse of so outlandish an individual as Queequeg circulating among the polite society of a civilized town, that astonishment soon departed upon taking my first daylight stroll through the streets of New Bedford."
