Since I had the great pleasure of teaching Moby Dick this semester and running through my own favorite passage, i’ll just point you to Harman’s blog for his ongoing quotations. Moby Dick is now one of my favorite novels. And it’s content is it’s form–long and bloated it’s the journey that counts. Plus it’s great for any theory. Animal studies? Check. Object oriented? Check. Race theory? Check. The meaning of whiteness? a whole chapter. And of course lots of juvenile sperm references.
