Please help with homework Moby-Dick: What is Ahab actually taking revenge for

  1. What is Ahab actually taking revenge for the loss of his leg, his suffering, his anger,something else, all of the above?
  2. Literary criticism has claimed that Ahab’s quest for revenge on the White Whale
    represents mankind’s struggle against the cruelty and arbitrariness of fate and human suffering. Do you agree or disagree?
  3. Compare and contrast Captain Ahab’s madness and Pip’s madness. A character in
    the novel describes them as “[o]ne daft with strength, the other daft with weakness” (Chapter 125). Which is which? Why do you think Ahab is so affected by Pip?
