Title: "...but upon the island of Nantucket, the widow of Radney still turns to the sea which refuses to give up its dead; still in dreams sees the awful white whale that destroyed him."

  1. Many thanks Hannah. This was an interesting piece for me to conceptualize. I felt that it would be very unlikely that Radney's widow would have ever seen an actual whale, therefore her perception of the thing which had destroyed her husband would have probably been vague, gigantic, and nightmarish. Hence, this piece.
