Review of The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket (1838)


Edgar Allan Poe (writer).

I can’t decide whether the sections of rather dull plagiarized travelogue leading up to the gripping ending actually need to be so long in order to establish a realistic framework for Poe to violate so brilliantly.
