In "Moby-Dick," Herman Melville tells a story of one man's anger and how it corrupts him, alienating him from those who would be his friends. The paper shows that, to emphasize this point, Melville demonstrates that even people of the most different backgrounds imaginable can become good friends. He demonstrates this through the unlikely, but undeniably deep, friendship between Ishmael, the narrator of the story, and Queequeg, a South Sea Islander who comes from a culture completely different from Ishmael's.
