Summary

Moby-Dick Chapter 121: Midnight – The Forecastle Bulwarks Summary Page 1

  • Stubb and Flask work to lash down the anchors hanging over the forecastle bulwarks to stop them swinging wildly loose.
  • Stubb teases Flask and insists that Flask ought to be less worried about what might happen to the ship: even though Ahab’s behavior is reckless, it doesn’t necessarily mean anything bad is going to happen to them.
  • Lots of ships get away with some reckless behavior.
