Moby Dick: "I just reread finished Moby Dick again, which was an incredibly rewarding experience.  One of the tragedies of having to read things in high school and colleges that you're really not ready for them.  So it's very important to read them when you have enough life experience and Moby Dick was a complete eye opener for me about the very things Dr. Cornell was talking about earlier about the hierarchy and social injustice.  And this madness that the head of this ship, which is going to take everybody to destruction.  And I found out because I wanted to know where he got the name Moby Dick.  And I actually found out that it was after Austin Beale who was who had a ship called the Moby Dick.  And he was smuggling slaves on this ship out of the south and he was doing this in the 1850s in Boston.
