Books Info:

Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket free pdf After reading an 1836 newspaper account of a shipwreck and its two survivors, Edgar Allan Poe penned his only novel, "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket," the story of a stowaway on a Nantucket whaleship who finds himself enmeshed in the dark side of life at sea: mutiny, cannibalism, savagery even death. As Jeffrey Meyers writes in his Introduction: [Poe] remains contemporary because he appeals to basic human feelings and expresses universal themes common to all men in all languages: dreams, love, loss- grief, mourning, alienation- terror, revenge, murder- insanity, disease, and death. Within the pages of this novel, we encounter nearly all of them. This Modern Library Paperback Classic reprints the text of the original 1838 American edition."
