    The ship sank, and many of the crew members were either lost immediately or died of starvation as they awaited rescue for nearly eight months. Queequeg becomes deathly ill and orders a canoe-shaped coffin from the ship's carpenter. A Moby Dick book scar, reportedly from a thunderbolt, runs down his face and, they say, the length of his body. Third mate is Flask, dull but competent. This act foreshadows the way in which the Pequod, when set at sea, becomes its own microcosm a symbolic little worldpeopled by a diverse crew, isolated, captained not by the spiritual Father Mapple but by the troubled, rebellious, angry Ahab. Fedallah, trapped in the harpoon line, is dragged overboard to his death.

The reader should remember this sermon in relationship to Ahab, who sins in numerous ways throughout the book but never repents and whose greatest sin is that he abjures all obligation to everything but his own desire for revenge. The carpenter measures Queequeg for his coffin and builds it, but Queequeg returns to health, claiming that he willed his own recovery. Readers might profit from reviewing the short Book of Jonah, only four brief chapters — or "yarns" as Father Mapple calls them.

    Father Mapple is like the captain of the ship, the congregation his crew. For Ahab, Moby Dick is that mask. I knew no one in the place. The mystery grows on Christmas morning when Ishmael spots dark figures in the mist, apparently boarding the Pequod shortly before it sets sail.
