[geefmech] Moby Dick / Khan

Is Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan a retelling of Moby Dick from the Whale's point of view?  Or, understanding it in that context, can we do a better retelling?  Someone trying to survive an attacker justifiably motivated by revenge is an intriguing plot, as the defender is in a no-win scenario.

From Hell's heart, I stab at thee; For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee!

This line seems more impressive printed than spoken.  Express the same sentiment more poetically.  It also seems like a line which could become impressive in another language.
