Summary
Charts changes in the appreciation of Moby-Dick from literary curiosity to masterpiece of American expression, and chronicles the changing understandings, from 1851 to the present, of what America and its culture might mean. A pattern that emerges from all of the essays is the way in which criticism of Moby-Dick has always seen Moby- Dick as a text which exposes the ways in which American ideology can be seen to operate. Treatment follows critical eras such as the "Melville revival," myth criticism and the growth of American studies, formalist approaches, and deconstructive reading and post-humanist critiques. c.
