I was that precocious brat who first read the whale esue sized Moby Dick at the age of nine Why I had my reasons and they were twofold 1 I was in the middle of my I love Jacues Cousteau phase and this book had a picture of a whale on the cover2 It was on the bookshelf juuuuust above my reach and so obviously it was good because it was clearly meant to be not for little kids and that made my little but bloated ego very happy So in retrospect were War and Peace and Le P re Goriot and The Great Gatsby In retrospect there may have been an underlying pattern behind my childhood reading choices From what I remember I read this book as a sort of encyclopedia a bunch of short articles about whaling and whale taxonomy and many ways to skin a whale and occasional interruptions from little bits of what as I now see it was the plot It was confusing and yet informative like life itself is to nine year oldsWhat do I think about it now having aged a couple of decades Well now I bow my head to the brilliance of it the unexpectedly beautiful language the captivating and apt metaphors the strangely progressive for its time views the occasional wistfulness interrupted by cheek The first third of it left me spellbound flying through the pages eager for Just look at this bit this unbelievable prose that almost makes me weep yes I m a dork who can get weepy over literature I blame it on my literature teacher mother So there Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth whenever it is a damp drizzly November in my soul whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me that it reuires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street and methodically knocking people s hats off then I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can This is my substitute for pistol and ball With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword I uietly take to the ship Bits like this is what made me stay up at night pouring over the pages I could finally see what my nine year old past self did not care about and appropriately so in the light of literal mindedness and straightforwardness that children possess Melville s constant persistent comparison of whaling to life itself using bits and pieces of whaling beliefs and rituals to illuminate the dark nooks and crannies of human souls to show that deep down inside regardless of our differences we all run on the same desires and motives and undercurrents of spirit Human madness is oftentimes a cunning and most feline thing When you think it fled it may have but become transfigured into some still subtler form The elusive White Whale is what we are all chasing in one form or another different for all of us different in how we see it and approach it and deal with it It s what we all pursue the difference is how Melville gives us one of the extremes the views of a single minded fanatic of one who puts everything aside sacrifices everything and everyone else for the sake of a dream of a desire of a goal the person who is capable of leading others unified in his focused narrow overwhelmingly alluring vision We can call Ahab a madman We can also call him a great leader a visionary of sorts had he only used the charisma and the drive and the single minded obsession to reach a goal less absurd less suicidal less selfish Had he with this monomaniac single mindedness led a crusade for something we think is worthwhile would we still call him a madman or would we wordlessly admire his never altering determination Isn t the true tragedy here in Ahab focusing his will on destruction and blind revenge leading those he s responsible for to destruction in the name of folly and pride Is that where the madness lies For there is no folly of the beast of the earth which is not infinitely outdone by the madness of men Moby Dick the elusive and largely symbolic whale until that is the last haunting three chapters where the chased id e fixe becomes terrifyingly real and refuses to humor Ahab s life goal is a force of nature so beautiful so majestic and breathtaking so lovingly described by Melville over pages and pages even though in all honesty he breaks up the fascination but trying unsuccessfully to persuade the reader that the amazing whale is just a fish Really the idea of a mere human considering it his right his goal to stand up to the majestic nature force armed with a destructive deadly weapon and bring it to the end after a long chase in the ultimate gesture of triumph that idea is chilling in its unremarkability Humans taming and conuering nature bending it to our will and desires the world being our oyster all that stuff It is not new It is what helped drive the industrial expansion of the modern society It is what makes us feel that we are masters of our world that our planet is ours to do whatever we humans please But Moby Dick finally abandoning his run from Ahab and standing up to him with such brutal ease is a reminder of the folly of such thinking and the reminder that there are forces we need to reckon with no matter how full of ourselves we may get Why only three stars you ask when clearly I appreciate the greatness of the classic Because the metaphors and parallels and meandering narration at times would get to be too much because I uite often found my mind and attention easily wandering away in the last two thirds of the book needing a gargantuan effort to refocus This what took of a star and a half resulting in 35 sea stars grudgingly but yet willingly given to this classic of American Romanticism Buoyed up by that coffin for almost one whole day and night I floated on a soft and dirgelike main The unharming sharks they glided by as if with padlocks on their mouths the savage sea hawks sailed with sheathed beaks On the second day a sail drew near nearer and picked me up at last It was the devious cruising Rachel that in her retracing search after her missing children only found another orphan

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 yeahI fucking love this book It took me eight hundred years to read it but it was so so worth it Melville s writing is impeccable The parallels he draws even when he s seemingly pulling them out of his ass which I swear to God he s doing because who can find this many parallels to draw when talking about a whale are just perfect He can compare any and every aspect of the whale did you know this whole book is about a whale to the human condition And he does so in a way that is humorous and poetic It is pretty remarkable I tell youSo here s the thing I had zero interest in whales before starting this book But holy hell if I haven t been googling the crap out of them lately I mean it s the mark of a superior writer isn t it to command one s attention not just to hold it but to carry it forth hither and thither for seven hundred pages of a book about a whale It s impressive really when you think about it And yet this book suffers a severe level of under appreciation on TEH GOODREADS It has an average rating of 333 which is extraordinarily dismal by this website s standards and with almost a uarter million ratings so far it is unlikely to migrate much from that figure So in an attempt to understand what it is people hate about this book I filtered the community reviews to show 1 star results and here is what I ve discovered This book would have been great admits Anulka if it weren t for that darn tootin whale interfering with the story The language is too much for Gil Michelini who believes words have their place after all we are not heathens but they simply do not belong in this novel Marlan s complaint is that there is too great a lack of story here so much so that it feels crammed in It s like trying to sueeze a cookie into a breadbox Some have experienced extreme aversions to this book It has made Colleen seasick uite frankly it has totally messed up Edwin s mind and it has made Robert want to light himself on fire Even Liz has acknowledged a preference for drowning if such an option existed as a substitute for reading Moby Dick Tracy Dunning would recommend renting the cartoon version which far surpasses the actual text in storytelling capability Still others have been befuddled by this novel s ability to hoodwink its readers into thinking they like it when in fact they don t a bizarre phenomenon Esther Hansen can personally attest to Finally Keya offers a sobering perspective which is that people are only reading this book to read it meaning that if they weren t reading it then it would simply be a book not being read Truly Yogi Berra couldn t have put it better himselfBut Keya does bring up an interesting point here why doesn t Ahab just get over it and live his life I mean should that be so hard In some sense the White Whale is nothing than a stand in for everything that has gone wrong in Ahab s life He mounts this campaign against the stand in but isn t that sort of disingenuous After all it s not the whale that s responsible for his miserable life Ahab claims to be an instrument of fate but fate in this case seems nothing than a self fulfilling prophecyOh fuck my fingers hurt from the backspaceLook here s the bottom line I was afraid this book would be long and boring And now I wonder how many people hesitate reading it because of its bad rap Well I m here to tell you Potential Reader this book might be long but it is by no means boring Therefore it is long and exciting TWSS I implore you to ignore the negative reviews Melville has a talent for flowing humorous prose and there is so much of it here to enjoySo go find your White WhalePS Gin rules

Of Moby Dick or The Whale Moby Dick or The Whale Herman Melville INTRODUCTION Moby Dick is a psychological allegory Literally a chronicle of whaling figuratively it is the psychodrama of Ishmael an “inside narrative” just as Melville called Billy Budd All the major characters represent aspects of his own psyche He undertakes a voyage into the wilderness of the seathe depths of Moby Dick House of Kabob serves authentic Moby Dick House of Kabob with locations in the DC Maryland Virginia serves top uality authentic Persian food with a Mediterranean flair Order online visit a restaurant near you or let us cater your next event to experience the delicious flame cooked kabobs from Moby Dick MOBY DICK or THE WHALE – I | ΘΕΙΑ ΚΩΜΩΔΙΑ Ο ΜΟΜΠΙ ΝΤΙΚ ή Η ΦΑΛΑΙΝΑ Moby Dick or The Whale κυκλοφόρησε το πρώτα στην Αγγλία και μετά στην Αμερική σε μια μεταβατική περίοδο των ΗΠΑ που από μια ομοσπονδία αποικιών μεταβαλλόταν σε κράτος με επεκτατικές βλέψεις Moby Dick Herman Melville Babelio Moby Dick c’est la monstrueuse baleine blanche l’incarnation du Mal cette figure de l’obsession et du double ui des profondeurs glaces accompagne le capitaine Achab habitu en surface aux combats titanesues des ocans Moby Dick est ce chef d’œuvre total ue tout le monde peut lire comme le plus formidable des romans d’aventures ; la ute aussi d’une humanit Moby Dick film AlloCin Moby Dick est un film ralis par Franc Roddam avec Patrick Stewart Dominic Purcell Synopsis Produit par Francis Ford Coppola ce film pour la TV conte l'aventure d'Ismal un jeune marin Moby Dick or the Whale by Herman Melville Moby Dick The Whale Herman Melville Moby Dick; or The Whale is a novel by American writer Herman Melville published in during the period of the American Renaissance Sailor Ishmael tells the story of the obsessive uest of Ahab captain of the whaler Peuod for revenge on Moby Dick the white whale that on the previous whaling voyage bit off Ahab's leg at the knee Moby Dick dfinition de Moby Dick et. 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 creative but then he pounded the reader with his knowledge of the whaling industry that could uite literally fill several textbooks This made the book so incredibly dull I m not being na ve towards this book s place in the literary cannon but I am sharing my agony for a book that bored me half to death with its singularity of purpose and expression it s obsession with whales I m just sick of themI understand that this is the main motif of the book Ahab becomes fuelled with his need to slay the leviathan but it wasn t Ahab who droned on for three hundred pages about the properties of whales Despite the allegorical interpretation between the relationship and the comparisons between man and fish the book is unnecessarily packed out There are passages and passages that add nothing to the meaning or merit of the work Melville explains every aspect of the whaling industry in dry monotone manner There are entire chapters devoted to describing different whale types and even one even discussing the superiority of the sperm whale s head Can you catch the expression of the Sperm Whale s there It is the same he died with only some of the longer wrinkles in the forehead seem now faded away I think his broad brow to be full of a prairie like placidity born of a speculative indifference as to death But mark the other head s expression See that amazing lower lip pressed by accident against the vessel s side as as firmly to embrace the jaw Does not this whole head seem to speak of an enormous practical resolution in facing death This Right Whale I take to have been a Stoic the Sperm Whale a Platonian who might have taken up Spinoza in his latter yearsIt is just so agonising to read This is uite possibly the most painful book I ve ever read in my life I ve never hated a book than I hate this behemoth I just felt there was no purpose to so many of the chapters they didn t add to the narrative or increase Ahab s obsession Also at times it wasn t entirely clear who the narrator was There would be the occasional glimpse of Ishmael and his aspect of the story and then this all knowing entity with an unfathomable depth of whaling knowledge would begin up again Tedium defined The writing gives new breath to the definition of mundane monotonous and tedious It is repetitive expressionless and soul destroying I became and annoyed the further I got into this book as soon as some semblance of plot would come through and some small degree of progress I would be hit with another fifty pages or so describing the properties of whale bubbler and even on one occasion a chapter devoted to rope How fun I began to hate this book with a passion that made me almost scream every time the word whale came up Now this was some tough reading Moreover I could never understand how Melville could consider whaling such a noble profession There is nothing noble about it it may have once been a necessity but it has always been cruel and brutal It may have been a means for communities to survive and people to eat but there is no honour in it How can shoving a pole through a whale cutting its head off slicing away its blubber and desecrating its body be considered in any way praiseworthy It s an aspect of life that is comparable to man today slaughtering a cow There is simply no glamour to be had in the deed You d think Melville was describing the life of a group of chivalrous knights they were whalers not heroes This book is awful in every sense of the word It has achieved literary fame but I still personally hate it I found everything about it completely and utterly detestable Never again will I go within five feet of anything written by Herman Melville I think a part of me died whilst reading this book it was just that disagreeable to me

    There once was a grouchy alpha whale named Moby Dick who rather than being agreeably shorn of his blubber and having lumpy sperm scooped out of his cranium like cottage cheese chose life Unlike so many shiftless layabout sea mammals of his generation Moby Dick did not go gentle into that good night This whale in short was not a back of the bus rider He assailed a shallow consumerist society which objectified him only
