This type of plot can be seen in such classics as The Catcher in the Rye, Huckleberry Finn, and The Odyssey. Besides these popular stories, there are inevitably fail...

  • Moral Judgements Moby Dick
    3,588 words
    Richard B. Sewall claims that Melville's vision in Moby-Dick is a cruel reminder of the original terror, in which all moral judgements are accompanied by tensions, paradoxes, and ambiguities.
