“Within the drama the Promethean Ahab challenges the laws of creation and dares to steal divine thunder in order to shape it to his ends, subordinating passive Ishmael to his will. But Ishmael alone has escaped to tell the tale and in that telling is the author of a new creation, subordinating Ahab to his purpose.”
Larzer Ziff, Moby-Dick or, the Whale
