Moby-Dick discussion questions Chapter 92 “Ambergris” and Chapter 93 “The Castaway”
- What about the final use of ambergris is ironic? How might the situation be interpreted, as Ishmael suggests, symbolically?
- What mistake does Pip make in this chapter? What are its effects and why?
- How does the surface/depth theme arise here? What do the depths do?
