The Island of Doctor Moreau - Q7: Naming
“It's an island... Where I live. So far as I know, it hasn't got a name.”
The island is unnamed. Why do you suppose not? Why hasn't Moreau given the Beast People a name?
Many other names do exist in the book – Moreau, Montgomery, Prendick, M'ling – can we infer something from them? The ships are also named: Lady Vain, Scorpion, Myrtle, Medusa, and the Ipecacuanha. Is there a theme?
