None of the characters represent pure evil or pure goodness. Even Melville's description of Ahab, whom he repeatedly refers to monomaniacal, suggesting an amorality or psychosis, is given a chance to be seen as a frail, sympathetic character.

Moby Dick In the novel Moby Dick, Ishmael is saved while the rest of the Pequod's crew die at sea. There is a specific point in the theme of the novel where each crew member sealed their fate. These thematic reasons make sense at the end of the novel. The Pequod's crew dies because of the pledge they made to Ahab. They put their lives on the line to capture the White Whale. At the time, all of the crew members on deck thought Moby Dick was a actual whale they were trying to catch. As the story

Moby Dick
Moby Dick
Moby Dick Moby Dick can be viewed as a tragedy. Webster's Dictionary defines tragedy as a dramatic composition, dealing with a serious or somber theme, typically that of a great person destined through flaw of character or conflict with some overpowering force, fate or circumstance to downfall or destruction. This describes Moby Dick very well, as we discover as the story unfolds. Ahab, one of the key characters in the novel, can be viewed as the protagonist, one who causes the actions that o

We must not conclude, there, that all his volitions and actions are predictable; Macbeth's character, like any other man's at a given moment, is what is being made out of potentialities plus environment, and no one, not even Macbeth himself, can know all his inordinate self-love whose actions are discovered to be-and no doubt h

Although Queequeg is a pagan, he has more Christian attributes than even the most devout Christians on the Pequod.

Moby Dick And The Counterpane Theme
Moby Dick And The Counterpane Theme There is a symbolic element in every great literary work, which makes the authors message more tangible and real to his readers.

Melville develops this symbolism on at least three levels, proving that the world is indeed a counterpane of diverse cultures, races, and environ

Many critics suppose that his initial book did not contain characters such as Ahab, Starbuck, or even Moby Dick, but the summer of 1850 changed Melvilles writing and his masterpiece.
