Solien extends the reach of the Melville novel, transmuting its figures and themes into a meditation on American restlessness and on our historical narrative of the settling of the West. He moves the contextual framework of the novel from adventures on the high seas and Massachusetts whaling towns to the American West. -- Plains Art Museum
