In literature, who famously hunts for Moby Dick?

Answer:

CAPTAIN AHAB

Captain Ahab is a fictional character and the main protagonist in Herman Melville's Moby-Dick (1851). He is the captain of the whaling ship Pequod. On a previous voyage, the white sperm whale Moby Dick bit off Ahab's leg at the knee. The whaling voyage of the Pequod ends up as a hunt for revenge on the whale, as Ahab forces the crew members to support his fanatical mission. Captain Ahab’s obsession with killing Moby Dick brings about his own death as well as those of all but one of his crew members—“Ishmael,” the novel’s narrator. Captain Ahab provided J. M. Barrie with the model for his Captain Hook character, who is obsessed not with a whale but a crocodile.
