Read Moby Dick; TWOK is a highschool drama club production in comparison.
I think I might have just said something like that.

What they aimed for and what they got were two very different creations.
What they got was very concentrated and simplified. But the similarities in spirit between the two characters are quite evident. (Frankly, of the two, it's actually Khan that has the more psychologically believable revenge motive -- at least his is a human enemy and he's lost more than a leg -- though Ahab's madness is worse for being the more irrational and animistic and Melville does a brilliant job at developing it.)
