MOBY-DICK, Page 543

Title: Their hands met; their eyes fastened; Starbuck's tears the glue.

"Oh, my captain, my captain! - noble heart - go not - go not! - see, it's a brave man that weeps; how great the agony of the persuasion then!"

  1. More salty tears to increase the brine of the ocean. The whale waits, impatient for the final chapter to make its awful appearance.

  2. Titus, this one was so hard for me. It is such an emotional moment, and it builds on so much that has gone before in the novel. I only hope to have captured at least some of that sadness and dread.

  3. Buck, I am glad some of that foreboding showed in this. It is a passage full of both sadness and fear and I worked hard to capture them both. There are no better tomorrows ahead at this point. Not for anyone.
