Publisher's Summary

Edgar Allan Poe's The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket is a pivotal work in which Poe calls attention to the act of writing and to the problem of representing the truth.

This rousing sea adventure follows New England boy Pym, who stows away on a whaling ship with its captain’s son, Augustus. The two boys repeatedly find themselves on the brink of death or discovery and witness many terrifying events, including mutiny, cannibalism and frantic pursuits. Poe imbued this deliberately popular tale with such allegorical richness, biblical imagery and psychological insights that the tale has come to influence writers as various as Melville, James, Verne and Nabokov.

A Rip-Roaring Adventure

This is a real gung-ho adventure from Poe - something a little different from his usual gothic poems and stories. If you're a fan, it's definitely worth a listen to see how versatile he was as a writer; and even if you're not usually a Poe fan I'd recommend this novel as something completely different. Great narration.
