Edgar Allan Poe-20%
Armoryka
Książka w dwóch wersjach językowych: polskiej i angielskiej. A dual Polish-English language edition. Powieść przedstawia historię młodego Artura Gordona Pyma, który postanawia ukryć się na pokładzie statku Grampus. Od tego momentu przydarzają mu się niezwykłe przygody, jest świadkiem katastrofy morskiej, buntu czy kanibalizmu. Opowieść rozpoczyna się całkiem konwencjonalną wyprawą morską, lecz staje się znacznie bardziej osobliwa i trudna do sklasyfikowania w ostatnich rozdziałach, łącznie z religijnym symbolizmem i zagadnieniem teorii pustej Ziemi. Powieść kończy się nagle, wraz z pojawieniem się dziwnej, spowitej mgłą sylwetki, mającej zabarwioną skórę niczym perfekcyjna biel śniegu. The work relates the tale of the young Arthur Gordon Pym, who stows away aboard a whaling ship called the Grampus. Various adventures and misadventures befall Pym, including shipwreck, mutiny, and cannibalism, before he is saved by the crew of the Jane Guy. Aboard this vessel, Pym and a sailor named Dirk Peters continue their adventures farther south. Docking on land, they encounter hostile black-skinned natives before escaping back to the ocean. The novel ends abruptly as Pym and Peters continue toward the South Pole. The story starts out as a fairly conventional adventure at sea, but it becomes increasingly strange and hard to classify. Poe, who intended to present a realistic story, was inspired by several real-life accounts of sea voyages, and drew heavily from Jeremiah N. Reynolds and referenced the Hollow Earth theory. He also drew from his own experiences at sea. Analyses of the novel often focus on the potential autobiographical elements as well as its portrayal of race and the symbolism in the final lines of the work.
