Moby Dick

by Herman Melville

Ishmael the philosopher and Ishmael the whaler are both readily apparent throughout the novel as grand explorers. One peers into the hearts of man and the other, into the hearts of whales. Both are complex in their propensity to enlighten the reader, but this is what makes Moby Dick so profound, because every time you read it, you pick up some new idea, brimming with oceanic ideas.
