    Captain Ahab and Moby Dick: Literary critics point to a variety of themes and juxtapositions when analyzing Herman Melville's "Moby Dick." Some see the land opposed to the sea or Fate opposed to free will. Most mention man versus nature or good versus evil.

    The meaning of the name itself is quite simple: The whale was often sighted in the vicinity of the Island of Mocha, and "Dick" was merely a generic name like "Jack" or "Tom." The transformation of "Mocha" to "Moby" presented a greater mystery. Melville himself never explained the origin of the latter word. The answer will probably never be known. The whiteness of the whale has many different meanings. There are obvious ones that are innocence, purity, and cleanliness. But there is also the aspe...
