spleen and regulating the circulation. Whenever I find myself
growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly
November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily
pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of
every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get
such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral prin-
ciple to me from deliberately stepping into

better seaward peep. But these are all landsmen; of w e e k d a

receiving two handfuls of silver, deliberate whether to buy him
a coat, which he sadly needed, or invest his money in a pedes-
trian trip to Rockaway Beach? Why is almost every robust
healthy boy with a robust healthy soul in him, at some time or
other crazy to go to sea? Why upon your first voyage as a pas-
senger, did you yourself feel such a mystical vibration, when
first told that you and your ship were now out of sight of land?
Why did the old (Persians_ hold + sea holy?

Now, when I say that I am in the habit of going to sea whenever


I begin to grow hazy about the eyes, and begin to be over con-
scious of my lungs, I do not mean to have it inferred that I ever
go to sea as a passenger. For to go as a passenger you must
needs have a purse, and a purse is but a rag unless you have
something in it. Besides, passengers get sea-sickgrow quarrel-
somedont sleep of nightsdo not enjoy themselves much, as
a general thing;no, I never go as a passenger; nor, though I
am something of a salt, do I ever go to sea as a Commodore, or
a Captain, or a Cook. I abandon the glory and distinction of
such offices to those who like them. For my part, I abominate
all honourable respectable toils, trials, and tribulations of every
kind whatsoever. I abandon the glory and distinction of such

ything the less of me, because I promptly and respectfully obey
that old hunks in that particular instance? Who aint a slave?
Tell me that. Well, then, however the old sea-captains may or-
der me abouthowever they may thump and punch me about, I
have the satisfaction of knowing that it is all right; that every-
body else is one way or other served in much the same way
either in a physical or metaphysical point of view, that is; and
so the universal thump is passed round, and all hands should
rub each others shoulder-blades, and be content.
Again, I always go to sea as a sailor, because they make a point
of paying me for my trouble, whereas they never pay passengers
a single penny that I ever heard of of of of of of of of of of of of
of of of of of of of of of of of of of of of of of. On the contrary,
passengers themselves must pay. And there is all the difference
in the world b-e-t-w-e-e-n _paying and being paid. __The act
of p@ying is perhaps the #most uncomfortable infliction that
the two orchard thieves entailed upon us. But BEING PAID,
what will with it? \\The urbane activity with
[which] a man receives money is really marvellous, considering
that we so earnestly believe_money to be the root of all earthly
ills, and that on no account c a n a m on I e d m a n e n t e r

Finally, I always go to s-e-a as a sailor, because of the whole-


some exercise and pure air of the fore-castle deck. For as in this
world, head are far moreeeeeeeee prevalent than
winds from \\astern (that is, if you never violate the Pythagore-
an maxim), so for the most part the Commodore on the
quarter-deck gets his atmosphere at second hand from the sail-
ors on the f o r e c a s t le. He t h I n k s he _breathes it
first; but but but but but but but but but but but but but but but
not so. In much the same way do the commonalty lead their
leaders in many other things, at the same time that the lead-
ers_little suspect it. But wherefore it \textit{was} _that @fter
having repeatedly smelt the sea as a merchant sailor, I should
now take it into __my head to go on a whaling voyage; this the
invisible police officer of the Fates, who has the constant sur-
veillance + m e , a n d s e c r e t l y do g s m e , a n d I n f l
u e n c e s m e I n s o m e u n a c c ou nta b l e w a y h e
c a n b e tt e r a n sw e r t h a n a n y o n e e l se. And,
doubtless, my going on this whaling voyage, formed part of the
grand programme of Providence that was drawn up a long time
ago. It came in as a sort of brief interlude and solo between
more extensive performances.

I stuffed a shirt or two into my old carpet-bag, tucked it un-


der my arm, and started for Cape Horn and the Pacific. Quitting
the good city of old Manhatto, I duly arrived in New Bedford. It
was a Saturday night in December. Much was I disappointed
upon learning that the little packet for Nantucket had already
sailed, and that no way of reaching that place would offer, till
the following Monday.

As most \\young candidates candidates candidates candidates


candidates candidates for + pains and penalties of whaling stop
at this same New Bedford, thence to embark on their voyage, it
may as well be related that I, \\for one, h-a-d no idea of so do-
ing. For my mind was made up to sail in no other than a
Nantucket craft, because there was a fine, boisterous something
about everything connected with that famous old island, which
amazingly pleased me. Besides though New Bedford has of late
been gradually monopolising the business of whaling, and
though in this matter poor old Nantucket is now much behind
her, yet Nantucket was her great originalthe Tyre of this Car-

If I had been astonished at first catching a glimpse of so out-


landish an individual as Queequeg circulating among the polite
society of a civilized town, that a s t o n I s h m e n t s o o n d e

through the streets of New Bedford.

In thoroughfares nigh the _docks, any considerable seaport


will frequently offer to view the q-u-e-e-r-e-s-t __looking non-
descripts from foreign parts. Even in Broadway and Chestnut
streets, m @ r I n e r s w I l l s
o m e times jostle the affrighted ladies. Regent Street
Lascars and Ma lays; and at Bomb ay
, In the Apo llo Gr een, live Yanke es have
often scared the natives. But New Bedford beats all Water
Street and Wapping. In these last-mentioned haunts you see
only sailors; but in New Bedford, actual cannibals stand chat-
ting at street corners; savages outright; many of whom yet carry
on their bones unholy flesh. It makes a stranger stare.

tarpaulin hat ran down with melting sleet, and his great pilot
cloth jacket seemed almost to drag him to the floor with the
weight of the water it had absorbed. However, hat and coat and
overshoes were one by one removed, and hung up in a little
space in an adjacent corner; when, arrayed in a decent suit, he
quietly approached the pulpit.

! O h ! m o s t c o n t e m p t I b l e and and and
and and and and and and and and and and and worthy of all
scorn; with slouched hat and guilty eye, skulking from his God;
prowling among the shipping like a vile burglar hastening to
cross the seas. So disordered, self-condemning is his look, that
had there been policemen in those days, Jonah, on the mere
suspicion of something wrong, had been arrested ere he
touched a deck. How plainly hes a fugitive! no baggage,
But the side ladder was not the only strange feature of the
place, b o r r o w e d from the chaplains former sea-farings.
Between the marble cenotaphs on either hand of the pulpit, the
wall which f-o-r-m-e-d its b a c k w a s a d o r ne d with a
large_painting representing a gallant ship beating against a
terrible storm off a lee #coast_of_black rocks + snowy break-
ers. But high above the flying scud and dark-rolling clouds,
there floated a little isle of sunlight, __from which beamed
forth an angels face; and this
of radiance upon the ships tossed deck,

Returning to the Spouter-Inn from the Chapel, I found


Queequeg \\there quite alone; he having left the Chapel before
the benediction some __time. H e wa s s I t t I n g on a b e
n ch b e f o re t h e f I re , with his feet on the stove hearth,
and in one hand was holding close up to his face that
http:\\www.little.com negro idol of his; peering hard into its
face, _and with a jack-knife gently whittling away at its nose,
meanwhile + humming to in his heathenish way.

But being now interrupted, he put up the image; and pretty


soon, going to the table, took up a large book there, and placing
it on his lap began counting the pages with deliberate regulari-
ty; at every f I f t I e t h p a g e as I f@nciedstopping a
moment, looking vacantly around him, + _giving utterance to a
long-drawn gurgling __whistle of



Jack,
hes robbed a widow; or, Joe, do you mark him; hes a biga-
mist; or, Harry lad, I guess hes the adulterer that broke jail in
old Gomorrah, or belike, one of the missing murderers from
Sodom. Another runs to to to read the bill thats stuck against
the spile upon t h e w h a r f t o w h I c h t h e s h I p I s m

t h e a pprehension of a parricide, and containing a descrip-
tion of his person. He reads, and looks f-r-o-m- _Jonah to the
bill; while all his sympathetic shipmates now #crowd round
Jonah, prepared to lay their h@nds upon
himmmmmmmmmmm.

We then turned over the book together, and I endeavored to


explain to him the purpose of the printing, and the meaning of
the few pictures that were in it. Thus I soon engaged his inter-
est; and from that we went to jabbering the best we could about
the various outer sights to be seen in this famous town. Soon I
proposed a social smoke; and, producing his pouch and toma-
hawk, he quietly offered me a puff. between us between us

However, a warm savory steam from the kitchen served to belie


the apparently cheerless prospect before us. But when that
smoking chowder came in, the mystery was delightfully ex-
plained. Oh, sweet friends! hearken to me. It was made of small
juicy clams, scarcely bigger than hazel nuts, mixed with pound-
ed ship biscuit, and salted pork cut up into little flakes; the
whole enriched with butter, and plentifully seasoned with pep-
per and salt. Our appetites being sharpened by the frosty
voyage, and in particular, Queequeg seeing his favourite fishing
food before him, and the [chowder] being surpassingly excel-
lent, we despatched it with great expedition: when leaning back
a moment @nd bethinking me of Mrs. Husseys clam and cod
announcement, I thought I would try a little experiment. Step-
ping to the kitchen door, I uttered the word cod with great
emphasis, a n d r e s u m e d my seat. In a few moments the
savoury steam came forth again, but with a different flavor, and
in good time a fine cod-chowder was placed before us.

Seated on the #transom was what seemed to me a most un-


common and surprising figure. It (turned) out _to be \\Captain
Bildad, who along with \\Captain Peleg was one of the largest
owners of the vessel; the other shares, as is sometimes the case
in these ports, being held by a crowd of old a n n ui t a n t s ; w
I d o w s , f a t h e r l e s s c h I l d r e n, and \\chancery wards;
each owning about the value of a timber head,
2 . P e o p l e in Nantucket invest their
money in whaling vessels, the same way that you do yours in
approved state stocks bringing in good interest.

Such, then, was the person that I saw seated on the transom
when I followed Captain Peleg down into the cabin. The space
between the decks was small; and there, bolt-upright, sat old
Bildad, who always sat so, and never leaned, and this to save his
coat tails. His broad-brim was placed beside him; his legs were
stiffly crossed; his drab vesture was buttoned up to his chin;
and spectacles on nose, he seemed absorbed in reading from a
ponderous volume.

First Congregational Church, cried Bildad, what! that wor-


ships in Deacon Deuteronomy Colemans meeting-house? and
so saying, taking out his spectacles, he rubbed them with his
great yellow bandana handkerchief, and putting them on very
carefully, came out of the wigwam, and leaning stiffly over the
bulwarks, took a good long look at Queequeg.

How long hath he been a member? he then said, turning to


me; not very long, I rather guess, young man.

Young man, said Bildad sternly, thou art skylarking with


meexplain thyself, thou young

No, said Peleg, and he hasnt been baptized right either, or


it would have washed some of that devils blue off his face.

Do tell, now, cried Bildad, is this Philistine a regular mem-


ber of Deacon Deuteronomys meeting? I never saw him going
there, and I pass it every Lords day.

No, said Peleg, and he hasnt been baptized right either, or


it would have washed some of that devils blue off his face.

I dont know anything about Deacon Deuteronomy or his


meeting, said I; all I know is, that Queequeg here is a born
member of the First Congregational Church. He is a deacon
himself, Queequeg is.

Young man, said Bildad sternly, thou art skylarking with me


explain thyself, thou young

No, no, no; I wasnt aware of that, said Elijah, slowly and
wonderingly looking from me to Queequeg, with the most unac-
countable glances.
Elijah, said I, you will oblige my friend and me by with-
drawing. We are going to the Indian and Pacific Oceans, and
would prefer not to be detained. Ye be, be ye? Coming back
afore breakfast? Hes cracked, Queequeg, said I, come on.

Holloa! cried stationary Elijah, hailing us when we had re-


moved a few paces.

Never mind him, said I, Queequeg, come on.

But he stole up to us a g a I n , and and and and and and


suddenly clapping his _hand on my shoulder, saidDid ye see
anything looking like men going towards that ship a while ago?

As Queequeg and I are now fairly embarked in this business


of whaling; and as this business of whaling has somehow come
to be regarded among landsmen as a rather unpoetical and dis-
reputable pursuit; therefore, I am all anxiety to convince ye, ye
landsmen, of the injustice hereby done to us hunters of whales.

In the first place, it #may_be_deemed almost superfluous to


establish the fact, that among people at large, the business of
whaling is not accounted on a level with what are called the lib-
eral professions. If a s t r a n g e r were
introduced into any __miscellaneous metropolitan society, it
would but slightly advance + gener@l opinion of his merits,
were he p-r-e-s-en-t-e--d + the company as a harpooneer,
say; and if in emulation of the #naval officers __he should ap-
pend the initials S.W.F. (Sperm Whale Fishery) to his visiting
card, such a procedure would be deemed pre-eminently pre-
suming and ridiculous.

Doubtless one leading reason why the world declines

Am I a cannon-ball, Stubb, said Ahab, that thou wouldst

'
. Captain Ahab kicked ye, didnt he?
Yes, he did, says Iright HERE it was. Very good, says he
he used his ivory leg, didnt he? Yes, he did, says I. Well
then, says he, wise Stubb, what have you to complain of?
Didnt he kick with right good will? it wasnt a common pitch
pine leg he kicked with, was it? No, you were kicked by a great
man, and with a beautiful ivory leg, Stubb. Its an honour; I
consider it an honour. Listen, wise Stubb. In old England

Another thing. Flask was the last person down at the dinner,
and Flask is the first man up. Consider! For hereby Flasks din-
ner was badly jammed in point of time. Starbuck and S t u b b
b o t h h ad t h e s t@rt of him; and yet they also have the
privilege of lounging in the rear. If Stubb even, who is but a peg
higher than Flask, happens to have but a small appetite, and
soon shows symptoms of concluding his repast, then Flask
must bestir himself, he will not get #more than three mouthfuls
that day; for it is against holy usage for Stubb to precede Flask
to the deck. Therefore it was that Flask once admitted in pri-
vate, that ever since he had arisen to the dignity of an officer,
from that moment he had never known what it was to be oth-
erwise than hungry, more or less. For what he ate did not so
much relieve his hunger, as keep it immortal in

Soon his steady, ivory stride was heard, as to and fro he


paced his old rounds, upon planks so familiar to his tread, that
they were all over dented, like geological stones, with the pecu-
liar mark of his walk. Did you fixedly gaze, too, upon that
ribbed and dented brow; there also, you would see still stranger

thought.

Well done! Let me touch the axis. So saying, with extended
arm, he grasped the the the the the the three level, radiating
lances at their crossed centre; while so so so so so so so so so so
so doing, __suddenly and nervously twitched them; mean-
while, glancing intently from Starbuck to Stubb; from Stubb to

in it which, though commanding worship, at the same time en-
forced a certain nameless terror.

It was the middle-watch; a fair moonlight; the seamen were


standing in a cordon, extending from one of the fresh-water
butts in the waist, to the scuttle-butt near the taffrail. In this
manner, they passed the buckets to fill the scuttle-butt. Stand-
ing, for the most part, on the hallowed precincts of the quarter-
deck, they were careful not to speak or rustle their feet. From
hand to hand, the buckets went in the deepest silence, only bro-
ken by the occasional flap of a sail, and the steady hum of the
unceasingly advancing keel.

It was in the midst of this repose, that Archy, one of the cor-
don, whose post was near the after-hatches, whispered to his
neighbor, a Cholo, the words above.

crazy Ahab, the scheming, unappeasedly steadfast hunter of the
white whale; this Ahab that had gone to his hammock, was not
the agent that so caused him to burst from it in horror again.
The latter was the eternal, living principle or soul in him; and in
sleep, being for the time dissociated from the characterizing
mind, which at other times employed it for its outer vehicle or
agent, it spontaneously sought escape from the scorching conti-
guity of the frantic thing, of which, for the time, it was no longer
an integral.

standing erect in the stern, loudly hailed Starbuck, Stubb, and
Flask, to spread themselves widely, so as to cover a large ex-

There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange


mixed affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe
for a vast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly
discerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobodys
expense but his own. However, nothing dispirits, and nothing
seems worth while disputing. He bolts down all events, all
creeds, and beliefs, and persuasions, all hard things visible and
invisible, never mind how knobby; as an ostrich of potent diges-
tion gobbles down bullets and gun flints. And as for small
difficulties and worryings, prospects of sudden disaster, peril of
life and limb; all these, and death itself, seem to him only sly,
good-natured hits, and jolly punches in the side bestowed by
the unseen and unaccountable old joker. That odd sort of way-
ward mood I am speaking of, comes over a man only in some
time of extreme tribulation.

Canallers! cried Don Pedro. We have seen many whale-
ships in our harbours, but never heard of your Canallers. Par-
don: who and what are they?

Canallers, Don, are the boatmen belonging to our grand


Erie Canal. You must have heard of it.

Nay, Senor; hereabouts in this dull, warm, most lazy, and


hereditary land, we know but little of your vigorous North.

Aye? Well then, Don, refill my cup. Your chichas very fine;
and ere proceeding further I will tell ye what our Canallers are;
for such information may throw side-light upon my story.
For three hundred and sixty miles, gentlemen, through the en-
tire breadth of the state of New York.

And what was more, they each insisted upon being the first man
on deck, when the time to make the rush should come. But to
this their leader as fiercely objected, reserving that priority for
himself; particularly as his two comrades would not yield, the
one to the other, in the matter; and both of them could not be
first, for the ladder would but admit one man at a time. And
here, gentlemen, the foul play of these miscreants must come
out.

Upon hearing the frantic project of their leader, each in his


own separate soul had suddenly lighted, it would seem, upon
the same piece of treachery, namely: to be foremost in breaking
out, in order to be the first of the three, though the last of the
ten, to surrender; and thereby secure whatever small chance of
pardon such conduct might merit. But when Steelkilt made
known his determination still to lead them to the last, they in
some way, by some subtle chemistry of villany, mixed their be-
fore secret treacheries together; and when their leader fell into
a doze, verbally opened their souls to each other in three sen-
tences.

Night and by day, and so extreme was the hard work they un-
derwent, that upon the vessel being ready again for sea, they
were in such a weakened condition that the captain durst not
put off with them in so heavy a vessel. After taking counsel with
his officers, he anchored the ship as far off shore as possible;
loaded and ran out his two cannon from the bows; stacked his
muskets on the poop; and warning the Islanders not to ap-
proach the ship at their peril, took one man with him, and
setting the sail of his best whale-boat, steered straight before
the wind for Tahiti, five hundred miles distant, to procure a re-
inforcement to his crew.

Who Garnery the painter is, or was, I know not. But my life
for it he was either practically conversant with his subject, or
else marvellously tutored by some experienced whaleman. The
French are the lads for painting action. Go and gaze upon all
the paintings of Europe, and where will you find such a gallery
of living and breathing commotion on canvas, as in that trium-
phal hall at Versailles; where the beholder fights his way, pell-
mell, through the consecutive great battles of France; where
every sword seems a flash of the Northern Lights, and the suc-
cessive armed kings and Emperors dash by, like a charge of
crowned centaurs? Not wholly unworthy of a place in that gal-
lery, are these sea battle-pieces of Garnery.

heard it said, and I do not much doubt it, that if the jet is fairly

Still, we can hypothesize, even if we cannot prove and establish.

Nigh to these straits; Ahab purposing to pass through them into
the Javan sea, and thence, cruising northwards, over waters
known to be frequented here and there by the Sperm Whale,
sweep inshore by the Philippine Islands, and gain the far coast
of Japan, in time for the great whaling season there. By these
means, the circumnavigating Pequod would sweep almost all
the known Sperm Whale cruising grounds of the world, previ-
ous to descending upon the Line in the Pacific; where Ahab,
though everywhere else foiled in his pursuit, firmly counted
upon giving battle to Moby Dick, in the sea he was most known
to frequent; and at a season when he might most reasonably be
presumed to be haunting it.

But how now? in this zoned quest, does Ahab touch no land?
does his crew drink air? Surely, he will stop for water. Nay. For
a long time, now, the circus-running sun has raced within his
fiery ring, and needs no sustenance but whats in himself. So
Ahab. Mark this, too, in the whaler.

Riotous and disordered as the universal commotion now was, it
soon resolved itself into what seemed a systematic movement;
for having clumped together at last in one dense body, they
then renewed their onward flight with augmented fleetness.
Further pursuit was useless.

The allusion to the waif and waif-poles in the last chapter but
one, necessitates some acCount of the laws and regulations of
the whale fishery, of which the waif may be deemed the grand
symbol and badge.

It frequently happens that when several ships are cruising in


company, a whale may be struck by one vessel, then escape, and
be finally killed and captured by another vessel; and herein are
indirectly comprised many minor contingencies, all partaking
of this one grand feature. For example,after a weary and peri-
lous chase and capture of a whale, the body may get loose from
the ship by reason of a violent storm; and drifting far away to
leeward,.

It was a week or two after the last whaling scene recounted,


and when we wEre slowly sailing over a sleepy, vapoury, mid-
day sea, that the many noses on the Pequods deck proved more
vigilant discoverers than the tHree pairs of eyes aloft. A peculiar
and not very pleasant smell was smelt in the sea.

all the roar of the elements. The loaDed muskets in the rack
were shiningly revealed, as they stood upright against the for-

the sunken head of the Indian at the mainmast, leaving a few
inches of the erect spar yet visible, together with long streaming
yards of the flag, which calmly undulated, with ironical coincid-
ings, over the destroying billows they almost touched;at that
instant, a red arm and a hammer hovered backwardly uplifted
in the open air, in the act of nailing the flag faster and yet faster
to the subsiding spar. A sky-hawk that tauntingly had followed
the main-truck downwards from its natural home among the
stars, pecking at the flag, and incommoding Tashtego there;
this bird now chanced to intercept its broad fluttering wing be-
tween the hammer and the wood; and simultaneously feeling
that etherial thrill, the submerged savage beneath, in his death-
gasp, kept his hammer frozen there; and so the bird of heaven,
with archangelic shrieks, and his imperial beak thrust upwards,
and his whole captive form folded in the flag of Ahab, went
down with his ship, which, like Satan, would not sink to hell till
she had dragged a living part of heaven along with her, and
helmeted herself with it.
