In Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, the themes of free will and free fate are explored through the experiences and relations of Ishmael, Queequeg, and Ahab. Melville uses subtle details within the novel to make readers question whether his characters could have prevented their own doom. Melville makes clear that the passengers upon the Pequod are in charge of their destiny such as Ishmael choosing to go on voyage, yet he also notes that there may be an outside force that is in control, such as using Ahab’s inability to explain what drives him to go after the whale. Melville uses examples in the text to acknowledge the recurring presence of both themes in the novel without explicitly choosing either sides. He focuses on the relationships between Ishmael and Queequeg and Ahab and the whale throughout the book to highlight the complexities of free will and fate and how they play an important role in Moby-Dick.

The punishment is a reinstatement of the sovereign‟s power, and is contrasted with the modern offences

Not only does the speaker rally for colonization, he believes white men are morally obligated to save uncolonized peoples. Themes of racial superiority pervade the poem, as clear in the lines: “your new-caught sullen peoples, / half devil and half child” (Kipling 7-8). To the author, European colonization goes beyond being a stranger in the village; he believes white men are the saviors of the village.

As a starting point, Arnold’s family, friends, and figures of authority in the reservation are clear evidence and reflection that the government 's attempt to assimilate the Indian population to the US society led to the destruction of the Indian culture.
