Moby-Dick discussion questions Chapter 61 “Stubb Kills a Whale”: Ishmael makes a metaphor about the whale’s “innermost life.
- Near the end of the chapter, Ishmael makes a metaphor about the whale’s “innermost life.” Explain why he makes such a comparison. Is it apt?
- Read the last sentence carefully. What about it is striking? What impression does it give of Stubb? Do you think readers 150 years ago would have gotten the same impression?
