Captain ahab - the great disappointment


Ishmael travels in December from Manhattan Island to New Bedford with plans to sign up for a whaling voyage. The inn where he arrives is overcrowded, so he must share a bed with the tattooed Polynesian Queequeg , a harpooneer whose father was king of the fictional island of Rokovoko . The next morning, Ishmael and Queequeg attend Father Mapple 's sermon on Jonah , then head for Nantucket . Ishmael signs up with the Quaker ship-owners Bildad and Peleg for a voyage on their whaler Pequod . Peleg describes Captain Ahab : "He's a grand, ungodly, god-like man" who nevertheless "has his humanities". They hire Queequeg the following morning. A man named Elijah prophesies a dire fate should Ishmael and Queequeg join Ahab. While provisions are loaded, shadowy figures board the ship. On a cold Christmas Day, the Pequod leaves the harbor.
