I'll agree with Old Man and the Sea, but Melville's corpse should be exhumed, reanimated and then beate
back to death with acetone-soaked copies of Moby Dick, set ablaze and then re-buried under copies of The Grapes of Wrath for good measure.From <a href="http://rinkworks.com/bookaminute/classi ... k-A-Minute
Call me Ishmael. Captain Ahab:
Crew, we will seek the white whale and kill it, because I am insane. Crew:
Alas, your destructive obsession will be our undoing. (They almost find the white whale. Then they almost find the white whale. Then they find it.)Captain Ahab:
I stab at thee. I stab at thee. (Everybody dies except Ishmael, although this is no surprise, because it was foreshadowed CONTINUALLY from the BEGINNING.)THE END
A duel, eh? Pistols at ten paces?
