The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket is Edgar Allan Poe's only complete novel, published in 1838. Set in 1827, it is an exciting blend of science, romance, adventure, realism, and supernaturalism. It is based on the actual experiences of J.N. Reynolds, whose book Poe consulted. The narrative comprises the details of a mutiny on board the American brig Grampus on her way to the South Seas. The young hero, Pym, aided by Augustus, the captain's son, becomes a stowaway. Poe incorporates it all: butchery, shipwreck, famine, massacre, and deliverance. But it is Pym's friendship and friction with Augustus that form the major part of the book's aesthetic design.weiterlesen
