Desconstruction of the Moderinistic Myth in Quinn's Ishmael

- Desconstruction of the Moderinistic Myth in Ishmael When I read Daniel Quinn’s works, Ishmael, Providence, The Story of B, and My Ishmael, I find a common theme woven throughout which is to desconstruct the moderinistic myth that we are apart from nature and therefore not subject to natural law. I don’t find Quinn’s ideas to be much different from what I read into David Orr’s Earth in Mind or David Ehrenfeld’s books Beginning Again and The Arrogance of Humanism.

- ... This inquisitive mindset is previously seen in Chapter 42 The Whiteness of the Whale, where Ishmael ponders about metaphysical and psychological topics concerning why the white coloration of the whale instills fear into people. Ishmael refers to the whiteness of the whale as many things, including “grand or gracious” and that “no man can deny that in its profoundest idealized significance it calls up a peculiar apparition to the soul.” (Melville 172) Ishmael ultimately concludes that the reason we are afraid of whiteness is because it represents things that are both beautiful and terrifying - an indefinite void that makes us think of atheism, nothingness, the absence of color, etc....   [tags: Moby-Dick, Sperm whale, Whale, Cetacea]

Perspective on Religion Herman Melville's Moby-Dick

- Perspective on Religion Herman Melville's Moby-Dick A cornerstone of the philosophical and narrative substructure of Herman Melville's Moby-Dick is point of view, or perspective. The textually primary point of view in the novel is Ishmael's, since he is the narrator of the story. However, Ishmael relates his story in such a way that one can easily detect numerous other "voices," or other perspectives, in the story, which often oppose the narrator's voice. These other, non-primary perspectives function both to establish Moby-Dick as a novel with numerous points of view and to clarify Ishmael's own particular point of view on certain subjects....   [tags: Moby Dick Essays]

Slow Suicide in Melville´s Moby Dick

- As man is bound to his subjective perception, inhibited from comprehending the essence of things, he is forced to apply personal, extraneous meaning to them or find himself devoid of it altogether. Loftiness of such application is the nature of romanticism, and such is the nature of Melville’s Moby Dick. The sea becomes vogue, limbo for the reticent felo-de-se; the untraversed, the nebulous, even the numinous.
