    Well, it’s not like the animal dies. Sure it’s a whale and not a dog, but it’s more than you can say about “Old Yeller.”

    (In truth, I have never read or watched “Old Yeller” and I never will, because I know how it ends.)

    I only have a vague memory of the overall plot, but I recall the lengthy digressions about whales and whaling. They make the book rough sailing at times, but I think they’re essential…

    It might be noted that part of Ishmael’s “a whale is a fish” argument is in defense of scripture. Scripture says Jonah was swallowed by a great fish, and vomited up whole. A sperm whale might do that, but no known ichthyoid fish could. So Jonah was likely swallowed by a whale, and a whale must be a fish. If you deny that a whale is a fish, you are casting doubt on scripture.

    I know some schools where that argument might have saved the kid’s grade, but I don’t think this is one of them.

    Ishmael goes on at great length about WHY he calls a whale a “fish,” in defense against those who say/said it isn’t/wasn’t. He wasn’t ignorant of the distinction, he just had reasons to reject it. So yes, it’s a question of the changing of the language, but it captures that change as it happens.

    (There was also a lawsuit in New York in 1818 over whether or not whale oil was technically “fish oil” for tax purposes. The jury decided that is was, but new legislation was enacted soon after to make the distinction clear.)

    (It might also usefully be pointed out that “a whale is a fish” isn’t necessarily Melville’s position, just Ishmael’s position.)

    It’s a great line, but "Listen: Billy Pilgrim has come unstuck in time” isn’t the opening line of Slaughterhouse Five. It’s how “Chapter 2” begins.

    “Chapter 1” is the narrator’s (Vonnegut’s) prologue, describing how he came to write the book and his reunion with Bernard V. O’Hare and O’Hare’s wife’s response to the idea; it’s essential to the story that follows; it may in fact be largely fictional (or highly embellished). The real first line of Slaughterhouse Five is “All of this happened, more or less.”

    When I decided it was time to read “Don Quixote,” the first edition I picked up was, I was surprised to find, abridged. I said “Screw that!” and went out to get an unabridged edition. After finishing it, I thought “I probably should have stuck with the abridged version.”

    Apparently a long chunk of it is a parody of Pastoral Romance (as opposed to Chivalric Romance), a genre which has not survived to the present day. It’s a joke for which there is no longer an audience, and that’s what the abridged edition leaves out.

    Nixon was often compared to Richard III, because he was smart and evil, and he had serious setbacks which he overcame by scheming (and Richard III was physically brave). The scene where Richard feigns piety is definitely ripe for comparison, but Richard was actually a convincing liar. I stated above that Richard (unlike DFPT) was self-aware, but Richard was generally smarter than his adversaries, which again is a better fit with Nixon.

    I’ve seen pro wrestling compared to porn: They’re actually doing what it looks like they’re doing, they just don’t actually love each other.

    Because this is a public forum and you are not having a private conversation with the OP. Other people are reading these comments and I assume that many of them, like me, respond to the post they are currently reading without checking the post to which that post was a response, particularly in a thread with (say) 138 subcomments.
