    The Rachel has also seen Moby Dick. As a result, one of its open boats is missing; the captain's son is aboard. The captain of the Rachel begs Ahab to aid in the search, but the Pequod's captain is resolute. He is very near the White Whale now and will not stop to help. Ahab is the first to spot Moby Dick. A literary classic that wasn't recognized for its merits until decades after its publication, Herman Melville's Moby-Dick tells the tale of a whaling ship and its crew, who are carried progressively further out to sea by the fiery Captain Ahab. Obsessed with killing the massive whale, which had previously bitten off Ahab's leg, the seasoned seafarer steers his ship to confront the creature 4/5().

    Moby Dick sweeps "his sickle-shaped lower jaw" () underneath Ahab and cuts one of his legs right off. Ahab begins by being furious at Moby Dick specifically for his maiming; then, he starts to blame the whale for all of his pain and anger. Eventually, Ahab turns the White Whale into a Symbol of All Evil.
