Melville began writing Moby-Dick in February 1850, and would eventually take 18 months to write the book, a full year more than he had first anticipated. Writing was interrupted by his making the acquaintance of Nathaniel Hawthorne in August 1850, and by the creation of the " Mosses from an Old Manse " essay as a first result of that friendship. The book is dedicated to Hawthorne, "in token of my admiration for his genius".

Ishmael discusses cetology (the zoological classification and natural history of the whale), and describes the crew members. The chief mate is 30-year-old Starbuck , a Nantucket Quaker with a realist mentality, whose harpooneer is Queequeg; second mate is Stubb , from Cape Cod, happy-go-lucky and cheerful, whose harpooneer is Tashtego , a proud, pure-blooded Indian from Gay Head, and the third mate is Flask , also from Martha's Vineyard , short, stout, whose harpooneer is Daggoo , a tall African, now a resident of Nantucket.

The whale carcass still lies in the water. Queequeg mounts it, tied to Ishmael's belt by a monkey-rope as if they were Siamese twins . Stubb and Flask kill a right whale whose head is fastened to a yardarm opposite the sperm whale's head. Ishmael compares the two heads in a philosophical way: the right whale is Lockean , stoic, and the sperm whale as Kantean , platonic . Tashtego cuts into the head of the sperm whale and retrieves buckets of oil. He falls into the head, and the head falls off the yardarm into the sea. Queequeg dives after him and frees his mate with his sword.
