    Excellent exegesis explaining the latter half of the title. Though I might have tossed in the symbolism of the harpoons…

    His analysis is just as good as many spouted by high school English teachers. And the harpoon symbolizes cupid’s arrow.

    But the only flaw in his analysis is that the whale got fat BEFORE the “marriage.”

    As Scott says, “It was a different time back then”. Zaftig was in; the anorexic look was out.

    Not bad, works whether Ahab is assigned as male or female.

    I say we should have at least one book report a month. It would be interesting to see how he handles Metamorphosis , for example. Oedipus Rex now, I’m not so sure.
