Herman in a nutshell:
"Call me Ishmael."
"I would prefer not to."
"In general, it is the non-psychological novel that offers the richest
opportunities for psychological elucidation. Here the author, having no
intentions of this sort, does not show his characters in a psychological light
and thus leaves room for analysis and interpretation, or even invites it by
his unprejudiced mode of presentation... I would also include Melville's Moby
Dick, which I consider to be the greatest American novel, in this broad class
of writings." (Carl Jung in The Spirit in Man, Art, and Literature, 1967)
