Ishmael, the teller of this story, has been hired onto the Pequod for a three-year hunt for whales.  Nobody who is new on the ship has met Captain Ahab and so won't know the real purpose of this voyage.  The first mate, Starbuck, does know and by no means approves of it.  When Ahab says the great white whale keeps treating him with "malice", Starbuck responds, "It was a dumb brute that took off your leg, Captain!  He smote thee from blindest instinct."  Ahab nevertheless swears vengence against the whale, to which Starbuck can only feel sick. Ahab insists, "I am not mad!"  Starbuck reminds him that his own job is to kill whales for a living, not to let whales kill him for a living.  (See Number 24 below.)
