Frankenstein as Moby Dick

A nice example of Briefer's pathos-laden take on the monster in the 50s. Briefer's wonderful economy, sense of composition and ability to suggest motion are all on display here. The scenes of the mad old whaler are memorable and the ship is depicted with obvious love.

On top of all that, this story sets up one of Frankie's last great adventures.
