Honolulu – Vor Hawaii wurde der Walfänger "Two Brothers" gefunden. Sein Kapitän inspirierte Hermann Melville zu seinem Roman "Moby. Hier finden Sie zu der Kreuzworträtsel-Frage Gestalt aus Moby-Dick (Kapitän ) 3 verschiedene Lösungen mit 4 Buchstaben.
Neither sick nor well, Ahab keeps close inside the house. Peleg and Bildad pilot the ship out of the harbor, and Ahab first appears on deck when the ship is already at sea.
Instead of embarking on a regular whaling voyage, Ahab declares he is out for revenge and nails a doubloon on the mast by way of reward for the crewmember who first sights Moby Dick, the white whale.
When Moby Dick is eventually sighted, a disastrous three-day chase begins. Entangled by the line of his own harpoon, Ahab falls overboard and drowns as the whale dives and takes him along.
Peleg refers to Ahab respectfully as a "grand, ungodly, god-like man" but he is also nicknamed "Old Thunder". According to Leon Howard, "Ahab is a Shakespearean tragic hero, created according to the Coleridgean formula.
Aboard were two sailors from the ship Nantucket who could have told him that they had seen their second mate "taken out of a whaleboat by a foul line and drowned, as is Captain Ahab of Moby-Dick.
Ahab is named for the Biblical story of Ahab in the Books of Kings Both Ahabs are shrewd in their secular associations.
The captain is successful in whaling, with a record of forty years. King Ahab, an able politician but a patron of foreign gods, offended Jehovah by introducing Baal as a god.
Jehovah tolerated no other gods and contrived with false prophets to destroy King Ahab. Like his namesake, Captain Ahab worships pagan gods, particularly the spirit of fire.
Fedallah the Parsee, his harpooner, is a fire-worshipping Zoroastrian. These prophesies, accurate as they may be, deceive Ahab, who perceives them to be an assurance of victory.
Olson identifies the typhoon in chapter , "The Candles," with the storm in Lear. On the contrary, this night Ahab uncovers his whole hate.
Ahab learns "little or nothing" throughout the book. Tashtego hammers a sky-hawk to the mast: The greatness and woe of both Satan and Ahab lies in pride.
Prometheus accomplished his theft by the stealthy hiding of the divine spark in a fennel stalk. The hunt for the White Whale, described by Ishmael as "the fiery hunt," thus represents a conflict with a deity—hence the references to Moby Dick as a god.
In a tragedy a hero has a mad counterpart: Prometheus has Io , Moby-Dick has Pip. The madness of Io and Pip is caused by their unintentional contact with the primal elements or with the deity.
In "The Candles," Ahab is temporarily stricken by blindness, an allusion to the Oedipus myth. Equally abundant are unfamiliar adjectives and adverbs, including participial adjectives such as officered , omnitooled , and uncatastrophied ; participial adverbs such as intermixingly , postponedly , and uninterpenetratingly ; rarities such as the adjectives unsmoothable , spermy , and leviathanic , and adverbs such as sultanically , Spanishly , and Venetianly ; and adjectival compounds ranging from odd to magnificent, such as "the message-carrying air", "the circus-running sun", and " teeth-tiered sharks".
The superabundant vocabulary of the work can be broken down into strategies used individually and in combination. First, the original modification of words as "Leviathanism"  and the exaggerated repetition of modified words, as in the series "pitiable", "pity", "pitied" and "piteous" Ch.
Characteristic stylistic elements of another kind are the echoes and overtones. His three most important sources, in order, are the Bible, Shakespeare, and Milton.
Another notable stylistic element are the several levels of rhetoric, the simplest of which is "a relatively straightforward expository style" that is evident of many passages in the cetological chapters, though they are "rarely sustained, and serve chiefly as transitions" between more sophisticated levels.
Examples of this are "the consistently excellent idiom" of Stubb, such as in the way he encourages the rowing crew in a rhythm of speech that suggests "the beat of the oars takes the place of the metronomic meter".
The fourth and final level of rhetoric is the composite , "a magnificent blending" of the first three and possible other elements:.
The Nantucketer, he alone resides and riots on the sea; he alone, in Bible language, goes down to it in ships; to and fro ploughing it as his own special plantation.
He lives on the sea, as prairie cocks in the prairie; he hides among the waves, he climbs them as chamois hunters climb the Alps. For years he knows not the land; so that when he comes to it at last, it smells like another world, more strangely than the moon would to an Earthsman.
With the landless gull, that at sunset folds her wings and is rocked to sleep between billows; so at nightfall, the Nantucketer, out of sight of land, furls his sails, and lays him to his rest, while under his very pillow rush herds of walruses and whales.
This passage, from a chapter that Bezanson calls a comical "prose poem", blends "high and low with a relaxed assurance".
Similar great passages include the "marvelous hymn to spiritual democracy" that can be found in the middle of "Knights and Squires". The concentration only gives way to more imagery, with the "mastheads, like the tops of tall palms, were outspreadingly tufted with arms and legs".
All these images contribute their "startling energy" to the advance of the narrative. The influence of Shakespeare on the book has been analyzed by F.
Matthiessen in his study of the American Renaissance with such results that almost a half century later Bezanson still considered him "the richest critic on these matters.
Matthiessen points out that the "mere sounds, full of Leviathanism, but signifying nothing" at the end of "Cetology" Ch.
That thing unsays itself. There are men From whom warm words are small indignity. I mean not to incense thee. The pagan leopards—the unrecking and Unworshipping things, that live; and seek and give.
No reason for the torrid life they feel! Most importantly, through Shakespeare, Melville infused Moby-Dick with a power of expression he had not previously possessed.
Lawrence put it, convey something "almost superhuman or inhuman, bigger than life". The creation of Ahab, Melville biographer Leon Howard discovered, followed an observation by Coleridge in his lecture on Hamlet: Ahab seemed to have "what seems a half-wilful over-ruling morbidness at the bottom of his nature", and "all men tragically great", Melville added, "are made so through a certain morbidness ; "all mortal greatness is but disease ".
On December 30, , he signed on as a green hand for the maiden voyage of the Acushnet , planned to last for 52 months. Its owner, Melvin O. Bradford, resembled Bildad, who signed on Ishmael, in that he was a Quaker: But the shareholders of the Acushnet were relatively wealthy, whereas the owners of the Pequod included poor widows and orphaned children.
The crew was not as heterogenous or exotic as the crew of the Pequod. Five of the crew were foreigners, four of them Portuguese, and the others were American, either at birth or naturalized.
Three black men were in the crew, two seamen and the cook. Fleece, the cook of the Pequod , was also black, so probably modeled on this Philadelphia-born William Maiden, who was 38 years old when he signed for the Acushnet.
Only 11 of the 26 original crew members completed the voyage. The others either deserted or were regularly discharged. Starbuck, was on an earlier voyage with Captain Pease, in the early s, and was discharged at Tahiti under mysterious circumstances.
Hubbard also identified the model for Pip: John Backus, a little black man added to the crew during the voyage. Ahab seems to have had no model in real life, though his death may have been based on an actual event.
Aboard were two sailors from the Nantucket who could have told him that they had seen their second mate "taken out of a whaleboat by a foul line and drowned".
Melville attended a service there shortly before he shipped out on the Acushnet , and he heard a sermon by the chaplain, year-old Reverend Enoch Mudge , who is at least in part the model for Father Mapple.
The other event was the alleged killing in the late s of the albino sperm whale Mocha Dick , in the waters off the Chilean island of Mocha.
Mocha Dick was rumored to have 20 or so harpoons in his back from other whalers, and appeared to attack ships with premeditated ferocity.
One of his battles with a whaler served as subject for an article by explorer Jeremiah N. This renowned monster, who had come off victorious in a hundred fights with his pursuers, was an old bull whale, of prodigious size and strength.
From the effect of age, or more probably from a freak of nature Significantly, Reynolds writes a first-person narration that serves as a frame for the story of a whaling captain he meets.
The captain resembles Ahab and suggests a similar symbolism and single-minded motivation in hunting this whale, in that when his crew first encounters Mocha Dick and cowers from him, the captain rallies them:.
As he drew near, with his long curved back looming occasionally above the surface of the billows, we perceived that it was white as the surf around him; and the men stared aghast at each other, as they uttered, in a suppressed tone, the terrible name of MOCHA DICK!
Mocha Dick had over encounters with whalers in the decades between and the s. He was described as being gigantic and covered in barnacles.
Although he was the most famous, Mocha Dick was not the only white whale in the sea, nor the only whale to attack hunters.
Melville remarked, "Ye Gods! What a commentator is this Ann Alexander whale. I wonder if my evil art has raised this monster.
While Melville had already drawn on his different sailing experiences in his previous novels, such as Mardi , he had never focused specifically on whaling.
The 18 months he spent as an ordinary seaman aboard the whaler Acushnet in —42, and one incident in particular, now served as inspiration.
This was the first printed account of it I had ever seen. The reading of this wondrous story on the landless sea, and so close to the very latitude of the shipwreck, had a surprising effect upon me.
The book was out of print, and rare. Melville let his interest in the book be known to his father-in-law, Lemuel Shaw , whose friend in Nantucket procured an imperfect but clean copy which Shaw gave to Melville in April Melville read this copy avidly, made copious notes in it, and had it bound, keeping it in his library for the rest of his life.
Moby-Dick contains large sections—most of them narrated by Ishmael—that seemingly have nothing to do with the plot, but describe aspects of the whaling business.
Vincent, the general influence of this source is to supply the arrangement of whaling data in chapter groupings.
The third book was the one Melville reviewed for the Literary World in , J. Although the book became the standard whaling reference soon after publication, Melville satirized and parodied it on several occasions—for instance in the description of narwhales in the chapter "Cetology", where he called Scoresby "Charley Coffin" and gave his account "a humorous twist of fact": The earliest surviving mention of the composition of what became Moby-Dick   is the final paragraph of the letter Melville wrote to Richard Henry Dana, Jr.
Yet I mean to give the truth of the thing, spite of this. Some scholars have concluded that Melville composed Moby-Dick in two or even three stages.
Reasoning from a series of inconsistencies and structural developments in the final version, they hypothesize that the work he mentioned to Dana was, in the words of Lawrence Buell , a "relatively straightforward" whaling adventure, but that reading Shakespeare and his encounters with Hawthorne inspired him to rewrite it as "an epic of cosmic encyclopedic proportions".
The most positive statements are that it will be a strange sort of a book and that Melville means to give the truth of the thing, but what thing exactly is not clear.
Melville may have found the plot before writing or developed it after the writing process was underway. Considering his elaborate use of sources, "it is safe to say" that they helped him shape the narrative, its plot included.
Less than two months after mentioning the project to Dana, Melville reported in a letter of June 27 to Richard Bentley, his English publisher:.
My Dear Sir, — In the latter part of the coming autumn I shall have ready a new work; and I write you now to propose its publication in England.
Nathaniel Hawthorne and his family had moved to a small red farmhouse near Lenox, Massachusetts , at the end of March The most intense work on the book was done during the winter of —, when Melville had changed the noise of New York City for a farm in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.
The move may well have delayed finishing the book. Yet, altogether, write the other way I cannot. So the product is a final hash, and all my books are botches.
The letter also reveals how Melville experienced his development from his 25th year: But I feel that I am now come to the inmost leaf of the bulb, and that shortly the flower must fall to the mould.
Theories of the composition of the book have been harpooned in three ways, first by raising objections against the use of evidence and the evidence itself.
Scholar Robert Milder sees "insufficient evidence and doubtful methodology" at work. Bezanson is not convinced that before he met Hawthorne, "Melville was not ready for the kind of book Moby-Dick became",  because in his letters from the time Melville denounces his last two "straight narratives, Redburn and White-Jacket , as two books written just for the money, and he firmly stood by Mardi as the kind of book he believed in.
His language is already "richly steeped in 17th-century mannerisms", characteristics of Moby-Dick. A third type calls upon the literary nature of passages used as evidence.
According to Milder, the cetological chapters cannot be leftovers from an earlier stage of composition and any theory that they are "will eventually founder on the stubborn meaningfulness of these chapters", because no scholar adhering to the theory has yet explained how these chapters "can bear intimate thematic relation to a symbolic story not yet conceived".
Despite all this, Buell finds the evidence that Melville changed his ambitions during writing "on the whole convincing". Melville first proposed the English publication in a 27 June letter to Richard Bentley , London publisher of his earlier works.
Thomas Tanselle explains that for these earlier books, American proof sheets had been sent to the English publisher and that publication in the United States had been held off until the work had been set in type and published in England.
This procedure was intended to provide the best though still uncertain claim for the English copyright of an American work. The final stages of composition overlapped with the early stages of publication.
Three weeks later, the typesetting was almost done, as he announced to Bentley on 20 July: Since earlier chapters were already plated when he was revising the later ones, Melville must have "felt restricted in the kinds of revisions that were feasible".
On 20 July, Melville accepted, after which Bentley drew up a contract on 13 August. He still had no American publisher, so the usual hurry about getting the English publication to precede the American was not present.
He published the book less than four weeks later. The title of a new work by Mr. Melville, in the press of Harper and Brothers, and now publishing in London by Mr.
Their slow sales had convinced Bentley that a smaller number was more realistic. The London Morning Herald on October 20 printed the earliest known review.
On 19 November, Washington received the copy to be deposited for copyright purposes. Excluding the preliminaries and the one extract, the three volumes of the English edition came to pages  and the single American volume to pages.
This list was probably drawn up by Melville himself: The edition also contains six short phrases and some 60 single words lacking in the American edition.
The quest is an obsession and the novel is a diabolical study of how a man becomes a fanatic. But it is also a hymn to democracy.
