Help with Questions to Moby-Dick: Queequeg a more mature and more profound version
Is Queequeg a more mature and more profound version of Tommo’s Typeean companions? What is the significance of the monkey rope? Does Queequeg make possible a deeper treatment of Melville’s old theme of civilization versus savagery, of immoral, hypocritical, Christian society compared to healthy, moral, sincere, pagan primitivism? What are the immediate causes and practical consequences of this contrast?
