Moby-Dick Chapter 124 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Ahab awakes the next morning to find that the compass needles of the ship have been turned around by the electrical energy of the storm, and that the Pequod is going west, instead of east along the equator.
Another means of steering the ship has gone by the wayside, indicating that the ship travels Ahab's course, or perhaps fate's course, toward its showdown with Moby.
