How far can a man's revenge go? Is it possible to kill a monster, especially when it's hidden in yourself? And is there a limit to human power? All these question are thoroughly studied in the whale Bilble of our history - Herman Melville's Moby-Dick. This huge novel provides an unforgettable image of a struggle between a man and an animal which in this case also symbolizes the nature. Captan Ahab is obsessed by his hate towards Moby-Dick, the giant whale which has ruined his previous ship and bit off his leg. Now the sailor prepares himself for the last fight, his mind is engaged in plannig the death of the monster. However, the author through the other sailor's point of view shows Ahab's maniacal state, his obsession with the creature. Consequently their fates appear to be bound together. Rich in symbols and second meanings, this novel directs the reader to the idea of how small people are in this world. Even the names of the heroes allude to the Biblical setting and give the book its grand scale. The author is still a bit humorous about our role in this world, he jokes about our misinterpreting the laws of life and the world. This is what adds a peculiare taste to the opposition between Ahab and Moby-Dick Unforgettable plot and wise descriptions made this novel the top of American novel style.
