Moby-Dick discussion questions Chapter 57 “Of Whales in Paint . . . “ and Chapter 58: “Brit”

  • What does this chapter say about “savages”? How does that mesh with the books larger themes?
  • Ishmael claims that “whales” can be seen in the hills and stars. What does that reveal about the effect of whales upon him?
  • What is brit? What happens to it? Why does Melville choose the word “scythe”?
  • Again in this chapter Melville equates the land and the sea. How does he do it in this chapter?
