Sample Solution

Mankind does not contemplate the purpose of suffering for long. Normally, it will endure the pain and try to see beyond it. However, works by Edgar Allan Poe and Herman Melville illustrate what happens when man is unable to see past his torment. In Poe's The Raven, and Melville's Moby Dick, both main characters become trapped and engulfed by their suffering and are unable to escape it. Melville's Captain Ahab believes that his suffering stems from the White Whale known as Moby Dick. Believing that "all visible objects" have a "little lower layer" hidden by a "pasteboard mask" (236), Ahab thinks that Moby Dick is more than just a simple beast. In his mind, the whale takes on the role of an enemy that continually plagues him. Not content to let the beast be, Ahab plunges after it in a frantic chase. Although he secretly fears that there is "naught beyond" (236) this mask and that his suffering is meaningless, he claims Moby Dick is responsible for his torment. Unlike other captains, Ahab is unable to accept that the loss of one's limb is a normal hazard in the whaling business, but instead takes it personally. He resolves to destroy the whale in order to end his suffering once and for all. Continually hunting the White Whale makes him more "demon that a man" (776) as destroying the whale becomes his top priority, even above the safety of his ship and crew. But Moby Dick still eludes him, and Ahab insists that the whale's continued existence is the cause of his suffering. Thus, conquering the White Whale becomes the only way Ahab could possibly satisfy his pain. But going after the whale is like pouring salt on a wound, and Ahab's suffering increases with every failed attempt in the chase for Moby Dick. Like Ahab, the nameless student who narrates The Raven he cannot get beyond his suffering, and the mysterious bird that arrives at his doorstep only deepens his sorrow. At first, the narrator is happy to find some company in the bird. But when it utters its only sound, Poe's character asks, "I betook myself to linking /what this ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore / meant in croaking 'nevermore'"(70-72). Initially the narrator rationalizes that the bird is just repeating the only phrase it knows, but it soon takes on a deeper meaning. Observing that the raven sits on top the bust of Pallas, the goddess of wisdom, he wonders if it comes to impart some precious knowledge of why he continues to suffer. The student cannot help but think that the raven is a sign from his deceased lover, Lenore. But as he begins to question the bird, he is continually met by the constant reply of "nevermore", which begins to affect the narrator's sanity. He continues to ask the bird questions that he knows will end in "nevermore", and each reply from the raven increases his suffering. In his ravings, the student calls the bird a "thing of evil-prophet still, if bird or devil!" (91) and lashes out at the raven's seeming indifference to his suffering. He perceives the bird as a wicked entity because it further intensifies his sorrow. However, the raven does not leave the student's chamber, and only continues to watch him as if mocking his grief. Although the bird seems innocuous, the narrator interprets its stare as malicious and inescapable. In the end, both Ahab and the student are unable to move beyond their suffering because they cannot see past it. Although Ahab is told that "the White Whale's malice is only his awkwardness" (635), he still cannot accept that Moby Dick is just an animal acting on instinct. But Ahab believes he will slay the agent of his suffering, not an aggressive Sperm Whale. By the time he meets Moby Dick for the final time, Ahab's monomania has erased all thoughts of turning back. With his final breath Ahab declares that he will destroy it, but instead is swallowed by the sea. His obsession with the whale destroys not just himself, but his ship and crew as well. The student also finds that he cannot escape from his suffering. In desperation he asks, "tell this soul with sorrow laden if,
