Yearning for adventure, young Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket stows away on the whaler Grampus. Beset by troubles including mutiny, shipwreck, and cannibals, Pym is rescued by the crew of the Jane Guy and continues his adventures as the ship heads further south.
The only complete novel written by Edgar Allan Poe, The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym drew heavily on several real-life accounts of sea voyages, and consequently influenced some of the greatest maritime writers, including Herman Melville and Jules Verne, who continued Pym’s story in The Antarctic Mystery.
