Need help to write an Essay on Moby-Dick: Why does Ishmael include so many digressions
Why does Ishmael include so many digressions in his narrative?
Why does he draw on so many other disciplines (geology, art, biology)? Choose one of these digressions (the chapter on “Cetology,” for example) and discuss the ways in which it comments on the main narrative.
