The White Whale in Moby Dick is one of the most well known symbols in American literature. To everyone, it represents something else; to Starbuck- moby dick is just another whale , except that he is very dangerous.  The captain, due to losing an arm to the whale, sees it as a great prize in both glory and sperm oil but wants to leave the whale alone. To Ahab, the whale is an embodiment of evil.
