Prendick awakes from dreams of "guns and howling mobs" to the sounds of the ship unloading. He emerges onto the deck and encounters the drunken captain, who rudely points him toward Montgomery and Doctor Moreau (although Prendick does not yet know his name). He wants Prendick off his ship, but Moreau refuses to take Prendick. After a heated argument among the three of them, the sailors begin trying to push Prendick overboard. They finally manage to shove him into the boat from the Lady Vain. They cut him adrift, and seeing both the schooner and Montgomery fading away brings Prendick the sudden realization that he is as deserted and desolate as he had been after the shipwreck. He begins crying and wailing. This excerpt is taken right from the GradeSaver site. You can check it out below.
