Moby Dick is the story of sailor Ishmael's voyage on Captain Ahab's whaleship Pequod. Ishmael realizes that Ahab has one purpose: to seek out and kill Moby Dick, a ferocious, enigmatic white sperm... More > whale that had destroyed Ahab's last boat and bit off his leg. The book portrays destructive obsession and monomania, as well as projecting human instincts, characteristics and motivations onto the whale. Moby Dick is ruthless in attacking the sailors who attempt to hunt and kill him, but it is Ahab who invests Moby Dick with malignant and evil intentions. In fact, it is not the whale but the crippled Ahab who possesses these evil characteristics. Moby-Dick contains large sections [most of them narrated by Ishmael] that seemingly have nothing to do with the plot but describe aspects of the whaling business. Melville believed that no book up to that time had portrayed the whaling industry in the way he viewed it, and wanted to craft something educational and definitive.< Less

There’s a touch of Dickens about the novel, certainly in the sense of irony within the plot and the way decisions taken with the best intentions can lead to the worst outcome. For Lawrence of course, such a plot line enables him to explore outside the normal social boundaries and where the father might think his daughter was lost, Lawrence and the daughter would consider her found.< Less
