Summary

Explores the nature of Melville's relations to his reader in Moby Dick, arguing that Melville and his narrator Ishmael are so dazzled, so completely seduced by the Ahab's charismatic charm that they, along with most readers and critics, are unable to see Ahab's character clearly confusing his demonism for tragic heroism.
