Summary

Moby-Dick Chapter 97: The Lamp Summary Page 1

  • Ishmael notes that all the sailors use lots of whale oil for their lamps, so their sleeping quarters are bright at night.
  • On other types of ships, the men aren’t allowed much oil or light because it’s expensive, but since the whaling ship harvests oil, there’s plenty on board.
