Post Moby Dick Chapter 30 The Pipe
Link: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/2701/270 ... m#2HCH0030

A very short chapter.

Ahab, lord of Leviathans and king of the sea, sat and smoked on a throne based on old Norse custom, "when the thrones of the sea-loving Danish kings were fabricated of the tusks of the narwhale."

Quote:
"Oh, my pipe! hard must it go with me if thy charm be gone! ... I'll smoke no more—" He tossed the still lighted pipe into the sea. The fire hissed in the waves

Post Re: Moby Dick Chapter 30 The Pipe
Thoughts of death uppermost in Ahab's mind. His pipe no longer gives him pleasure 'like the dying whale, my final jets were the strongest and fullest of trouble.'
