Abstract:

This potboiler features Pym, a young man from Nantucket, in a combination of sea adventure and geographical fantasy. Both imaginary and factual accounts of voyages of exploration were quite popular at the time, and Poe's features mutiny, widespread slaughter, shipwreck, starvation, and cannibalism. In form a diary kept by Pym, the horrific tale is relayed with such verisimilitude that some readers accepted the novel as a factual account, overlooking the low statistical probability of so much horror on a single voyage.
