Il vero protagonista di Moby Dick è il mare: omerico e biblico insieme, diventa il regno dei mostri, del terrore, delle immense profondità che sfuggono alla comprensione umana; la balena bianca contro la quale lotta ostinatamente e inutilmente il capitano Achab è un abbagliante simbolo dell’assurdità e del male del mondo. Quest’opera, che per grandezza di concezione e di realizzazione è stata paragonata alla Divina Commedia, è un complesso affresco dell’umano destino, esito della visione tragica della vita che ebbe Melville, del suo senso della disperante ambiguità del bene e del male tra cui l’uomo oscilla senza possibilità di scelte definitive.

I re-read Moby-Dick following my research trips to the whaling museums of New Bedford and Nantucket whaling museums. The particular edition I read from University of California Press is HIGHLY recommended as the typeface is extremely agreeable to the eyes and the illustrations are subtle and instru
“Where the White Whale, yo?” Ah, my first DBR. And possibly my last, as this could be a complete shit show. Approaching a review of Moby-Dick in a state of sobriety just wasn’t cutting it, though. So let’s raise our glasses to Option B, yeah? I fucking love this book. It took me eight hundred years to Leggi tutto
So, Herman Melville's Moby Dick is supposed by many to be the greatest Engligh-language novel ever written, especially among those written in the Romantic tradition. Meh. It's not that I don't get that there's a TON of complexity, subtlety, and depth to this book about a mad captain's quest for reven Leggi tutto
i tried. Both ends of the line are exposed; the lower end terminating in an eye-splice or loop coming up from the bottom against the side of the tub, and hanging over its edge completely disengaged from everything.

I hate this book so much. It is impossible to ignore the literary merit of this work though; it is, after all, a piece of innovative literature. Melville broke narrative expectations when he shed the narrator Ishmael and burst through with his infinite knowledge of all things whale. It was most cre
The narrator of this flabbergasting marine saga is an impecunious but very erudite young man possessing a sarcastic sense of humour and having a tongue-in-cheek attitude to life… Call me Ishmael. Some years ago – never mind how long precisely – having little or no money in my purse, and nothing parti Leggi tutto
