For those of you unacquainted with frequent commenter Jessica Gothie (no relation to the Jessica of Jessica's Well, below), she has been working, on and off, on a chapter-by-chapter gloss on Moby Dick. So what? you inquire. There has to be five billion dissertations on Moby Dick weighing down the dusty unvisited stacks of the university libraries of the West. Jessica is reading Moby Dick as if it were yaoi doujinshi, or slash fanfic. More fun than literary analysis really ought to be, y'know?
