Moby Dick Essay

Sahand Ansari Period 5 March 10, 2012 White Shadows of the White Whale “Malice in the whale, Madness in the man”.

Captain Ahab and Moby Dick

infatuated with destroying a great white whale, named Moby-Dick. By chapter 37 "Sunset", it is obvious that Ahab is mad and in chapter 44 "The Chart", the reader is made aware of Ahab's "monomaniac thought of his soul."
