Throughout the whole novel Melville undertook great pains to provide a vast network of associations in order to amplify the image of the whale for the reader. Every description of a different concept of the White Whale from any culture brings with it a vast body of pictures and notions, each able to incite a reaction of associations within the reader; the result being necessarily a wide range of different meanings — almost one meaning for every reader. Cloaked in different accounts of the White Whale comes an amplification process.

The cetology of Moby-Dick is Ishmael 's zoological classification of whales. Although a work of fiction, Melville included sequences of chapters concerned largely with a pseudo-objective discussion of the properties of whales.

By drawing upon linguistic and symbolic parallels present between 'Moby Dick' and these two works, the essay aims to show how Melville alludes to classical sources to create a refreshingly modern piece of work. Typically, past discussion concerning the tale of the diabolically passionate Captain Ahab in his monomaniac quest to destroy the notorious White Whale has been more dedicated toward exploring larger passages of the text in order to assess the literary inspirations resting behind its formation.

Moby Dick presents a novel constructed from an array of classical materials and literary forms, which form the base of its figurative framework.
