Now I'm taking a night class and reading it with life experience of forty years. Awe is the feeling that constantly gets evoked as I read.

That is the word that repeats again and again in my head. Moby-Dick is a vibrantly colored hot air balloon that keeps growing in size as I read it.

First, Melville's subject is the sperm whale, the largest creature on earth. But we don't just learn about the sperm whale but about all whales.

Then we learn about whaling and its nobility. Here is where it gets very interesting. We participate in whaling, its skill, equipment, courage, risks and economy AND about how it results in the gruesome destruction of the whale.

We feel the horror inflicted on the whales and we feel the nobility of the activity that slaughters them.

Melville doesn't allow us to avert our eyes either to the daring of whaling or to the viciousness of the slaughter.

That is where the book inflates even more because he holds both perspectives equally which is a much larger place than if he had taken sides.

The book also foreshadows modernism by using a variety of narrative techniques; theater, pure narration, encyclopedic explanations and subjective interior monologues.

Melville is constantly breaking up the narrative with omniscient recitations of fascinating information about his subject matter. In doing so the line loops around Ahab's neck, and as the stricken whale swims away, the captain is drawn with him out of sight.

Queequeg's coffin comes to the surface, the only thing to escape the vortex when Pequod sank. For an entire day, Ishmael floats on it, until the Rachel , still looking for its lost seamen, rescues him.

Ishmael is the narrator, shaping his story with use of many different genres including sermons, stage plays, soliloquies, and emblematical readings.

Narrator Ishmael, then, is "merely young Ishmael grown older. Bezanson warns readers to "resist any one-to-one equation of Melville and Ishmael.

According to critic Walter Bezanson, the chapter structure can be divided into "chapter sequences", "chapter clusters", and "balancing chapters".

The simplest sequences are of narrative progression, then sequences of theme such as the three chapters on whale painting, and sequences of structural similarity, such as the five dramatic chapters beginning with "The Quarter-Deck" or the four chapters beginning with "The Candles".

Chapter clusters are the chapters on the significance of the colour white, and those on the meaning of fire. Balancing chapters are chapters of opposites, such as "Loomings" versus the "Epilogue," or similars, such as "The Quarter-Deck" and "The Candles".

Scholar Lawrence Buell describes the arrangement of the non-narrative chapters as structured around three patterns: Each has been more and more severely damaged, foreshadowing the Pequod ' s own fate.

Second, the increasingly impressive encounters with whales. In the early encounters, the whaleboats hardly make contact; later there are false alarms and routine chases; finally, the massive assembling of whales at the edges of the China Sea in "The Grand Armada".

A typhoon near Japan sets the stage for Ahab's confrontation with Moby Dick. The third pattern is the cetological documentation, so lavish that it can be divided into two subpatterns.

These chapters start with the ancient history of whaling and a bibliographical classification of whales, getting closer with second-hand stories of the evil of whales in general and of Moby Dick in particular, a chronologically ordered commentary on pictures of whales.

The climax to this section is chapter 57, "Of whales in paint etc. The next chapter "Brit" , thus the other half of this pattern, begins with the book's first description of live whales, and next the anatomy of the sperm whale is studied, more or less from front to rear and from outer to inner parts, all the way down to the skeleton.

Two concluding chapters set forth the whale's evolution as a species and claim its eternal nature. Some "ten or more" of the chapters on whale killings, beginning at two-fifths of the book, are developed enough to be called "events".

As Bezanson writes, "in each case a killing provokes either a chapter sequence or a chapter cluster of cetological lore growing out of the circumstance of the particular killing," thus these killings are "structural occasions for ordering the whaling essays and sermons".

Bryant and Springer find that the book is structured around the two consciousnesses of Ahab and Ishmael, with Ahab as a force of linearity and Ishmael a force of digression.

Ahab with violence, Ishmael with meditation. And while the plot in Moby-Dick may be driven by Ahab's anger, Ishmael's desire to get a hold of the "ungraspable" accounts for the novel's lyricism.

Ahab's is to hunt Moby Dick, Ishmael's is "to understand what to make of both whale and hunt". One of the most distinctive features of the book is the variety of genres.

Bezanson mentions sermons, dreams, travel account, autobiography, Elizabethan plays, and epic poetry. A significant structural device is the series of nine meetings gams between the Pequod and other ships.

These meetings are important in three ways. First, their placement in the narrative. The initial two meetings and the last two are both close to each other.

The central group of five gams are separated by about 12 chapters, more or less. This pattern provides a structural element, remarks Bezanson, as if the encounters were "bones to the book's flesh".

Second, Ahab's developing responses to the meetings plot the "rising curve of his passion" and of his monomania.

Third, in contrast to Ahab, Ishmael interprets the significance of each ship individually: Instead, they may be interpreted as "a group of metaphysical parables, a series of biblical analogues, a masque of the situation confronting man, a pageant of the humors within men, a parade of the nations, and so forth, as well as concrete and symbolic ways of thinking about the White Whale".

Scholar Nathalia Wright sees the meetings and the significance of the vessels along other lines. She singles out the four vessels which have already encountered Moby Dick.

The first, the Jeroboam , is named after the predecessor of the biblical King Ahab. Her "prophetic" fate is "a message of warning to all who follow, articulated by Gabriel and vindicated by the Samuel Enderby , the Rachel , the Delight , and at last the Pequod ".

None of the other ships has been completely destroyed because none of their captains shared Ahab's monomania; the fate of the Jeroboam reinforces the structural parallel between Ahab and his biblical namesake: An early enthusiast for the Melville Revival, British author E.

Forster , remarked in Biographer Laurie Robertson-Lorant sees epistemology as the book's theme. Ishmael's taxonomy of whales merely demonstrates "the limitations of scientific knowledge and the impossibility of achieving certainty".

She also contrasts Ishmael and Ahab's attitudes toward life, with Ishmael's open-minded and meditative, "polypositional stance" as antithetical to Ahab's monomania, adhering to dogmatic rigidity.

Melville biographer Delbanco cites race as an example of this search for truth beneath surface differences. All races are represented among the crew members of the Pequod.

Although Ishmael initially is afraid of Queequeg as a tattooed cannibal, he soon decides, "Better sleep with a sober cannibal than a drunken Christian.

The theme of race is primarily carried by Pip, the diminutive black cabin boy. Editors Bryant and Springer suggest perception is a central theme, the difficulty of seeing and understanding, which makes deep reality hard to discover and truth hard to pin down.

Ahab explains that, like all things, the evil whale wears a disguise: How can the prisoner reach outside, except by thrusting through the wall?

To me, the white whale is that wall" Ch. This theme pervades the novel, perhaps never so emphatically as in "The Doubloon" Ch. Later, the American edition has Ahab "discover no sign" Ch.

In fact, Moby Dick is then swimming up at him. In the British edition, Melville changed the word "discover" to "perceive", and with good reason, for "discovery" means finding what is already there, but "perceiving", or better still, perception, is "a matter of shaping what exists by the way in which we see it".

Yet Melville does not offer easy solutions. Ishmael and Queequeg's sensual friendship initiates a kind of racial harmony that is shattered when the crew's dancing erupts into racial conflict in "Midnight, Forecastle" Ch.

Commodified and brutalized, "Pip becomes the ship's conscience". In Chapter 89, Ishmael expounds the concept of the fast-fish and the loose-fish, which gives right of ownership to those who take possession of an abandoned fish or ship, and observes that the British Empire took possession of American Indian lands in colonial times in just the way that whalers take possession of an unclaimed whale.

The novel has also been read as being critical of the contemporary literary and philosophical movement Transcendentalism , attacking the thought of leading Transcendentalist [28] Ralph Waldo Emerson in particular.

Richard Chase writes that for Melville, 'Death—spiritual, emotional, physical—is the price of self-reliance when it is pushed to the point of solipsism, where the world has no existence apart from the all-sufficient self.

An incomplete inventory of the language of Moby-Dick by editors Bryant and Springer includes "nautical, biblical, Homeric, Shakespearean, Miltonic, cetological" influences, and his style is "alliterative, fanciful, colloquial, archaic, and unceasingly allusive": Melville tests and exhausts the possibilities of grammar, quotes from a range of well-known or obscure sources, and swings from calm prose to high rhetoric, technical exposition, seaman's slang, mystic speculation, or wild prophetic archaism.

Many words that make up the vocabulary of Moby-Dick are Melville's own coinages, critic Newton Arvin recognizes, as if the English vocabulary were too limited for the complex things Melville had to express.

Perhaps the most striking example is the use of verbal nouns, mostly plural, such as allurings , coincidings , and leewardings.

Equally abundant are unfamiliar adjectives and adverbs, including participial adjectives such as officered , omnitooled , and uncatastrophied ; participial adverbs such as intermixingly , postponedly , and uninterpenetratingly ; rarities such as the adjectives unsmoothable , spermy , and leviathanic , and adverbs such as sultanically , Spanishly , and Venetianly ; and adjectival compounds ranging from odd to magnificent, such as "the message-carrying air", "the circus-running sun", and " teeth-tiered sharks".

Arvin's categories have been slightly expanded by later critics, most notably Warner Berthoff. The superabundant vocabulary of the work can be broken down into strategies used individually and in combination.

First, the original modification of words as "Leviathanism" [36] and the exaggerated repetition of modified words, as in the series "pitiable", "pity", "pitied" and "piteous" Ch.

Characteristic stylistic elements of another kind are the echoes and overtones. His three most important sources, in order, are the Bible, Shakespeare, and Milton.

Another notable stylistic element are the several levels of rhetoric, the simplest of which is "a relatively straightforward expository style" that is evident of many passages in the cetological chapters, though they are "rarely sustained, and serve chiefly as transitions" between more sophisticated levels.

One of these is the " poetic " level of rhetoric, which Bezanson sees "well exemplified" in Ahab's quarter-deck soliloquy, to the point that it can be set as blank verse.

Examples of this are "the consistently excellent idiom" of Stubb, such as in the way he encourages the rowing crew in a rhythm of speech that suggests "the beat of the oars takes the place of the metronomic meter".

The fourth and final level of rhetoric is the composite , "a magnificent blending" of the first three and possible other elements:.

The Nantucketer, he alone resides and riots on the sea; he alone, in Bible language, goes down to it in ships; to and fro ploughing it as his own special plantation.

There is his home; there lies his buisiness, which a Noah's flood would not interrupt, though it overwhelmed all the millions in China.

He lives on the sea, as prairie cocks in the prairie; he hides among the waves, he climbs them as chamois hunters climb the Alps. For years he knows not the land; so that when he comes to it at last, it smells like another world, more strangely than the moon would to an Earthsman.

With the landless gull, that at sunset folds her wings and is rocked to sleep between billows; so at nightfall, the Nantucketer, out of sight of land, furls his sails, and lays him to his rest, while under his very pillow rush herds of walruses and whales.

This passage, from a chapter that Bezanson calls a comical "prose poem", blends "high and low with a relaxed assurance". Similar great passages include the "marvelous hymn to spiritual democracy" that can be found in the middle of "Knights and Squires".

The elaborate use of the Homeric simile may not have been learned from Homer himself, yet Matthiessen finds the writing "more consistently alive" on the Homeric than on the Shakespearean level, especially during the final chase the "controlled accumulation" of such similes emphasizes Ahab's hubris through a succession of land-images, for instance: For as the one ship that held them all; though it was put together of all contrasting things—oak, and maple, and pine wood; iron, and pitch, and hemp—yet all these ran into each other in the one concrete hull, which shot on its way, both balanced and directed by the long central keel; even so, all the individualities of the crew, this man's valor, that man's fear; guilt and guiltiness, all varieties were welded into oneness, and were all directed to that fatal goal which Ahab their one lord and keel did point to.

The final phrase fuses the two halves of the comparison, the men become identical with the ship, which follows Ahab's direction.

The concentration only gives way to more imagery, with the "mastheads, like the tops of tall palms, were outspreadingly tufted with arms and legs".

All these images contribute their "startling energy" to the advance of the narrative. When the boats are lowered, the imagery serves to dwarf everything but Ahab's will in the presence of Moby Dick.

The influence of Shakespeare on the book has been analyzed by F. Matthiessen in his study of the American Renaissance with such results that almost a half century later Bezanson still considered him "the richest critic on these matters.

Matthiessen points out that the "mere sounds, full of Leviathanism, but signifying nothing" at the end of "Cetology" Ch.

That thing unsays itself. There are men From whom warm words are small indignity. I mean not to incense thee. The pagan leopards—the unrecking and Unworshipping things, that live; and seek and give.

No reason for the torrid life they feel! Most importantly, through Shakespeare, Melville infused Moby-Dick with a power of expression he had not previously possessed.

Lawrence put it, convey something "almost superhuman or inhuman, bigger than life". In addition to this sense of rhythm, Melville acquired verbal resources which for Matthiessen showed that he "now mastered Shakespeare's mature secret of how to make language itself dramatic".

The creation of Ahab, Melville biographer Leon Howard discovered, followed an observation by Coleridge in his lecture on Hamlet: Ahab seemed to have "what seems a half-wilful over-ruling morbidness at the bottom of his nature", and "all men tragically great", Melville added, "are made so through a certain morbidness ; "all mortal greatness is but disease ".

In addition to this, in Howard's view, the self-references of Ishmael as a "tragic dramatist", and his defense of his choice of a hero who lacked "all outward majestical trappings" is evidence that Melville "consciously thought of his protagonist as a tragic hero of the sort found in Hamlet and King Lear ".

Moby-Dick is based on Melville's experience on the whaler Acushnet , however even the book's most factual accounts of whaling are not straight autobiography.

On December 30, , he signed on as a green hand for the maiden voyage of the Acushnet , planned to last for 52 months. Its owner, Melvin O.

Bradford, resembled Bildad, who signed on Ishmael, in that he was a Quaker: But the shareholders of the Acushnet were relatively wealthy, whereas the owners of the Pequod included poor widows and orphaned children.

The crew was not as heterogenous or exotic as the crew of the Pequod. Five of the crew were foreigners, four of them Portuguese, and the others were American, either at birth or naturalized.

Three black men were in the crew, two seamen and the cook. Fleece, the cook of the Pequod , was also black, so probably modeled on this Philadelphia-born William Maiden, who was 38 years old when he signed for the Acushnet.

Only 11 of the 26 original crew members completed the voyage. The others either deserted or were regularly discharged. Starbuck, was on an earlier voyage with Captain Pease, in the early s, and was discharged at Tahiti under mysterious circumstances.

Hubbard also identified the model for Pip: John Backus, a little black man added to the crew during the voyage. Ahab seems to have had no model in real life, though his death may have been based on an actual event.

Aboard were two sailors from the Nantucket who could have told him that they had seen their second mate "taken out of a whaleboat by a foul line and drowned".

Melville attended a service there shortly before he shipped out on the Acushnet , and he heard a sermon by the chaplain, year-old Reverend Enoch Mudge , who is at least in part the model for Father Mapple.

Even the topic of Jonah and the Whale may be authentic, for Mudge was a contributor to Sailor's Magazine , which printed in December the ninth of a series of sermons on Jonah.

In addition to his own experience on the whaling ship Acushnet , two actual events served as the genesis for Melville's tale. The other event was the alleged killing in the late s of the albino sperm whale Mocha Dick , in the waters off the Chilean island of Mocha.

Mocha Dick was rumored to have 20 or so harpoons in his back from other whalers, and appeared to attack ships with premeditated ferocity.

One of his battles with a whaler served as subject for an article by explorer Jeremiah N. This renowned monster, who had come off victorious in a hundred fights with his pursuers, was an old bull whale, of prodigious size and strength.

From the effect of age, or more probably from a freak of nature Significantly, Reynolds writes a first-person narration that serves as a frame for the story of a whaling captain he meets.

The captain resembles Ahab and suggests a similar symbolism and single-minded motivation in hunting this whale, in that when his crew first encounters Mocha Dick and cowers from him, the captain rallies them:.

As he drew near, with his long curved back looming occasionally above the surface of the billows, we perceived that it was white as the surf around him; and the men stared aghast at each other, as they uttered, in a suppressed tone, the terrible name of MOCHA DICK!

Mocha Dick had over encounters with whalers in the decades between and the s. He was described as being gigantic and covered in barnacles. Although he was the most famous, Mocha Dick was not the only white whale in the sea, nor the only whale to attack hunters.

Melville remarked, "Ye Gods! What a commentator is this Ann Alexander whale. I wonder if my evil art has raised this monster.

Bildad is much more focused on religious matters, reading his Bible and preferring to hire Christian whalers to man the ship.

Peleg, while a member of the Quaker faith, is less concerned with spiritual things. He curses and yells aboard the ship, and speaks of his concern about Captain Ahab's temperament in one of Moby-Dick's monologues.

Der Name Ahab nimmt unter anderem Bezug auf den gleichnamigen Herrscher des Nördlichen Israel , der laut biblischer Überlieferung ein gottloser König ist. Januar heuerte Melville in Nantucket auf dem Walfänger Acushnet an. Reale Hintergründe für die Schilderungen in Moby-Dick waren Melvilles eigene Erfahrungen sowie mehrere ihm bekannt gewordene Ereignisse bzw. Ahabs Gegenspieler ist der erste Steuermann , Starbuck, ein kühner und erfahrener Seemann, der nüchtern und rational denkt und durch seine Frömmigkeit auffällt. September von Nantucket zur Fangfahrt in den Südatlantik aus. Theresia Mutzenbecher unter Mitwirkung von Ernst Schnabel. In den erzählerischen und essayistischen Abschnitten finden sich oft lange, verschachtelte Satzperioden mit komplexen Metaphern und zahlreichen literarischen und biblischen Anspielungen. Die Erlebnisse auf der Insel verarbeitete er vor allem in seinem Buch Typee. Melville bedient sich dabei einer Vielfalt stilistischer Mittel und kombiniert mehrere Fachsprachen — die des Walfangs, der Seefahrt, der religiösen, wissenschaftlichen und lyrischen Sprache — und einer Reihe von Dialekten und Soziolekten. Moby-Dick beginnt mit dem Satz: Ahab wird in seinem Walboot von einer Bucht der auslaufenden Harpunenleine erfasst und von dem abtauchenden Wal unter Wasser gezogen. Mai schrieb er ihm, dass eine literarische Darstellung des Walfangs nicht leicht falle: Durch die Nutzung dieser Website erklären Sie sich mit den Nutzungsbedingungen und der Datenschutzrichtlinie einverstanden.

Yet Ahab has great respect and reverence for Moby Dick. Ahab himself knows he is obsessed and but can have great compassion like his feelings for the lowly addled Pip.

So yes there is evil afoot in the book but it isn't the kind that that creates simple polar opposites. There is evil and there is also goodness that coexists in the book making the reader feel that he has to take sides.

If the reader resists this temptation he or she will experience the awe of a deep and ever expanding mystery. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.

A very enjoyable listen. Well narrated and takes a long time to get through, my two main requirements for an audiobook: I tried reading this when I was young luckily never given it as an assignment and it is a tough read.

Herman Melville was a master of the poetic phrase and it is beautiful to listen to but a trudge to read imho. A true American classic of the dangers of revenge and mob mentality.

It also provides a time-machine like glimpse into the powerful American whaling industry and once again demonstrates the American concept for good or bad that whatever the world does we will outstrip it.

I was especially pleased with the authors narrators view on the belief that mankind could never kill enough whales to endanger their numbers in the ocean and provides an interesting analogy separating their killing from the American Buffalo.

Sadly, little did he know of where technology and seafaring were headed just a few decade later. Nathaniel Philbrick is a brilliant writer.

His prose is flowing and clear, and he has chosen his excerpts from this towering work well. So why four stars and not five? The final chapter of this wonderful book seemed vague and the concluding paragraphs felt like a contradiction to every valid point in the previous pages.

It is almost as though the editor said to Philbrick: Put in a rainbow, or something. He was probably bipolar although the word is never mentioned , and certainly had a strong streak of depression in his personality and life experiences.

That Melville somehow clung to youthful dreams through the end of his life is just a little too improbable.

That a scrap of paper found by Melville's family after his death is the evidence of such hope is very weak evidence indeed.

That he managed to live out his life in obscurity after failing to achieve family harmony, financial success or artistic recognition does not suggest hope as much as resignation.

Philbrick is certainly entitled to this opinion, although for me, as a reader of this tiny gem of a book, it seemed a falsified conclusion, unworthy of all of the sensitive and almost poetic content in the rest of the book.

This review is for the Norton Critical th Anniversary Edition. I've read several other versions, as this is one of my favorite books, and this edition would easily be in my Top editions to own.

Despite being a paperback and filled with supplemental material, I was surprised at how compact it is. The annotations and illustrations really add to your reading enjoyment of this classic novel.

Audio CD Verified Purchase. I knew I could never get through reading the novel so I bought the audio version intending to listen to it in my car while out and about.

Instead, my husband and I listen to it while traveling in the car on long trips. This turned out to be a great idea because we can both listen to it and it makes the time fly by on long drives.

When it says "performed by Frank Muller" they aren't kidding. He doesn't just narrate, he does the voices of each character and he makes it all sound so interesting.

Frank Muller is a true talent at audio books. As for the story, it is a classic with surprisingly humorous parts.

Slogging though the book would've been a chore for me and I'm glad I found a way to experience the story of Moby Dick that I find thoroughly enjoyable.
