love that book, just read it again a few months ago.what struck me this time was the sly sense of humor and social commentary that Mellville slides into sailors and others conversations.a progressive thinker, ahead of his time in a big way, but it's easy to miss that, especially if you've only seen the movie versions. In the movies (both the Gregory Peck and Patrick Stewart versions) it's all about Ahab's insane quest, but in the book is an entire subtext of human relations, even aspects of the class struggle.didn't get that the first few times I read it. maybe that's because I was tripping so much back then, lol.
