ABSTRACT
American Literature is considered to have gained its independence from the dominance of British Literature in early nineteenth century with the rise of the Romance tradition. A foremost writer of this tradition in America is Herman Melville and this article analyzes Melville's Moby Dick to investigate how the writer treats contrasting concepts in his works to demonstrate the duality of existence that is closely related to the American experience.
