Moby Dick by Herman Melville
Ishmael: Call me Ishmael.
Captain Ahab: Crew, we will seek the white whale and kill it, because I am insane.
Crew: Alas, your destructive obsession will be our undoing.
(They almost find the white whale. Then they almost find the white whale. Then they find it.)
Captain Ahab: I stab at thee. I stab at thee.
(Everybody dies except Ishmael, although this is no surprise because it was foreshadowed CONTINUALLY from the BEGINNING.)
