Theme For Moby Dick

The theme that I got out of this book and movie is that you should not allow something that is wrong in your life take a front and center position in your everyday life. I feel that this is what Captain Ahab did in this book by taking revenge out on a whale that took his leg. He let his feelings get the best of him inthis story and I will tell you about my reasoning behind all this in the follow paragraphs.
Captain Ahab had lost his leg in a whaling accident to a whale named Moby Dick. This of course made him a bitter old man and in turn made a person full of anger and hatred towards a figure in nature.

Its as if this haunts him everyday of his life and he portrays it to the whole society in which he lives at the time. In the passage I am going to state he talks about the whale showing us that this is what he dreams about probably everyday: "aye, Queequeg, the harpoons lie al…
