Central to this penetrating commentary is the concept of Nekyia, a term borrowed from the Odyssey of Hojmer, signifying a descent to the underworld--that is an encounter with the collective unconscious. Thus, the subtitle of this work underscores the correspondence between the deep internal struggle from which Melville's masterpiece emerged and the hidden complexities within us all.
