English and Biology

After listening to the discussion about how biology and eng can interact I was inspired. I really enjoyed the idea that there are 4 types of stories for all novels. I thought it was really cool that we talked about the presidential race and politics and wove that into the topic of stories. I think Melville was writing more of a narrative with a base in the past. the story has to do with time and foundational characters. Those seemed like two important elements for both the book and the narrative foundational stories.

I was thinking about the question posed in class about whether Moby Dick is complete and I still have not come up with an answer. I know it has an ending, but I'm not so sure it is complete...It does seem as if the story winds around a bit without order at times.
