#1 Why is this considered the great american novel? von Johneames 18.12.2017 11:34

I just finished it. I thought it was a mess, to tell the truth. Was it a piece of fiction, a long-winded essay on whaling, or just a self-indulgent waste of time?

And why is this considered the great AMERICAN novel? I didn't find it to be especially inherently American. Maybe it was in the motivations of the characters, or the fighting spirit of the whaling men? Is that spirit considered an American quality? I don't know. I guess I need some help from some smart people.

And what's the deal with this Pip character?

Please help.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
