  • ""This scrupulously prepared, thorough, and extremely useful edition of Poe's only novel will thrill students, instructors, and general Poe aficionados in equal measure. Indeed, the map of Pym's voyage, incredibly appearing here for the first time, is worth the price of admission alone! The developed and informative introduction, meticulous footnotes, well-considered bibliography, and carefully selected appendices combine to offer a model of accessible and impressive scholarship ideal for the classroom or for the general reader of Poe. Even experts are likely to glean new insights from this top-notch edition."--Jeffrey Andrew Weinstock, Central Michigan University."
  • "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket is Edgar Allan Poe's only completed novel. It begins as a standard sea adventure but descends into Poe's signature dark style, as its protagonist, Arthur Gordon Pym, encounters mutiny and cannibalism. A stowaway on the whaling ship Grampus, Pym finds more adventure than he bargained for once at sea. Poe drew on his own seafaring experiences while writing and The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket went on to be cited as an influence by Herman Melville and Jules Verne."@en
  • "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."
  • "Appendices include virtually all of the contemporary sources of exploration and south polar navigation that Poe consulted and adapted to the narrative, together with reviews and notices of Pym and a sampling of responses to the novel from a wide array of authors, from Herman Melville and Charles Baudelaire to H.P. Lovecraft and Toni Morrison. Seven illustrations are also included."
  • "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. From the Trade Paperback edition."@en
  • "The only complete novel written by Edgar Allan Poe which follows life of the young Arthur Gordon Pym aboard a whaling ship called the Grampus. Shipwreck, mutiny, and cannibalism befall Pym, before he is saved by the crew of the Jane Guy. Aboard this vessel, Pym and a sailor named Dirk Peters continue their adventures further south."@en
  • "When Edgar Allan Poe's only novella was first published in 1838, the reviews were slow in coming and dismissive when they arrived. The book's failure left Poe in such dire financial straits that he even accepted a job at one of the magazines that had panned it. But The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket has since become one of his most influential works: Baudelaire translated it, Paul Theroux read it out loud to Jorge Luis Borges, Jules Verne wrote a sequel to it, H. P. Lovecraft drew on it in creating his own tales of the Antarctic . . . Ostensibly, it's a classic adventure story about a young boy who runs away to sea and encounters all the classic scenarios: mutinies, storms, shipwrecks, ravenous sharks, hostile natives. And Poe drew on many contemporary accounts of exploration in the South Seas to give his story a sense of verisimilitude. But there are far deeper currents at work in the book than mere adventure: elements of the supernatural as they near the South Pole, evocations of the protagonists' experiences at sea that rival Poe's best tales of horror, and a disturbing ending that continues to stir debate. From the Trade Paperback edition."@en
  • "Poe's only book-length narrative, recounting his Nantucket-born hero's adventures, misadventures, and discoveries, and his survival of shipwreck and capture by cannibals, as he journeys toward the South Pole."@en
  • "Poe's only book-length narrative, recounting his Nantucket-born hero's adventures, misadventures, and discoveries, and his survival of shipwreck and capture by cannibals, as he journeys toward the South Pole."
  • "The longest piece of fiction Poe wrote, Pym contains one of the most thrilling and enigmatic conclusions ever written. If you enjoy mystery, horror, and an ending that takes you into the embraces of a cataract and leaves you with half a dozen unanswered questions, this is the book for you!"@en
  • ""So tempting an opportunity of solving the great problem in regard to an Antarctic continent had never yet been afforded to man'" A stowaway aboard the whaling ship Grampus, Arthur Gordon Pym finds himself bound on an extraordinary voyage to the high southern latitudes. Poe's remarkable novel recounts the "incredible adventures and discoveries" of Pym and his companions. There is mutiny, appalling butchery, and the "exquisite horror" of cannibalism; premature burial within an impenetrable seaborne labyrinth; a corpse-ridden ghost ship, gigantic polar bears, and uncharted islands peopled by barbarian hordes. It was Poe's unique genius, however, that imbued this Gothic adventure tale with such allegorical richness that readers have been fascinated ever since. In his illuminating introduction and notes to this new edition of Poe's masterpiece, Richard Kopley reveals hidden layers of meaning involving both Poe's family and biblical prophecy."@en
  • "Describes he incredible adventures on the American whaling ship Grampus."
  • "The late Frederick S. Frank was Professor Emeritus of English at Allegheny College. He published widely on Gothic literature and was the editor of the Broadview Edition of Horace Walpole's The Castle of Otranto cold The Mysterious Mother. Diane Long Hoeveler is Professor of English at Marquette University. --Book Jacket."
  • "Edgar Allan Poe's only long fiction has provoked intense scholarly discussions about its meaning since its first publication. The novel relates the adventures of Pym after he stows away on a whaling ship, where he endures starvation, encounters with cannibals, a whirlpool, and finally a journey to an Antarctic sea. It draws on the conventions of travel writing and science fiction, and on Poe's own experiences at sea, but is ultimately in a category of its own."
  • ""This new edition of Poe's only completed novel represents a welcome option for instructors. The edition features a comprehensive critical introduction detailing the history of Pym scholarship and critical approaches, a detailed chronology of Poe's life, and three valuable appendices that reprint Poe's most important literary sources, a healthy selection of contemporary reviews, and responses by other writers such as Melville and James. The selection of sources and reviews will delight instructors eager to teach the novel in its nineteenth-century context."--Leland S. Person, University of Cincinnati."
