Inevitably, then, collective passions are being funnelled into a drive for war that uncannily resembles Captain Ahab in pursuit of Moby Dick, rather than what is going on, an imperial power injured at home for the first time, pursuing its interests systematically in what has become a suddenly reconfigured geography of conflict, without clear borders, or visible actors.

The idea of a connected and collected story has obviously visited and abandoned its writer again and again in the course of composition. Our author must be henceforth numbered in the company of the incorrigibles who occasionally tantalize us with indications of genius, while they constantly summon us to endure monstrosities, carelessnesses, and other such harassing manifestations of bad taste as daring or disordered ingenuity can devise… We have little more to say in reprobation or in recommendation of this absurd book … Mr.

Here is one of the first reviews of Moby-Dick, or, The Whalepublished in the London Spectator in October and re-reprinted, a month later, in the New York International magazine:.

And why would such an overly exposed audience embrace a work of such heft, especially as almost every edition carries the added weight of ponderous academic commentary? He broaches the novel in quirky thematic fashion, with gracefully written compact essays on topics like landlessness, chowder and sharks.
