    Reseña

    La narración de Arthur Gordon Pym es la crónica de un viaje, una odisea que transcurre por los cauces del más crudo realismo para devenir, finalmente, en aventura de irresoluto cariz fantástico. Las peripecias marítimas del señor Pym, a pesar de la innatural sucesión de momentos pavorosos, de situaciones inmersas en el más puro horror humano (claustrofobia y cataleps...ia, amotinamientos sangrientos, antropofagia y buques fantasma), muestran un realismo poco usual, un aire de veracidad al que sin duda contribuyen las continuos referencias documentalistas con que Poe salpica la novela, y que no resultan extrañas en manos de un personaje que dice estar recordando acontecimientos vividos que le marcaron profundamente.

    Acerca de Edgar Allan Poe

    Edgar Allan Poe (1809-49) was born in Boston and orphaned at an early age. Taken in by a couple from Richmond, Virginia, he spent a semester at the University of Virginia but could not afford to stay longer. After joining the Army and matriculating as a cadet, he started his literary career with the anonymous publication of Tamerlane and Other Poems, before working as a lite...rary critic. His life was dotted with scandals, such as purposefully getting himself court-martialled to ensure dismissal from the Army, being discharged from his job at the Southern Literary Messenger in Richmond after being found drunk by his boss, and secretly marrying his thirteen-year-old cousin Virginia (listed twenty-one on the marriage certificate). His work took him to both New York City and Baltimore, where he died at the age of forty, two years after Virginia. Poe struggled with poverty, bereavement, illness, alcoholism and a hallucinatory imagination. His extraordinary sequence of short stories has profoundly affected western culture since first publication in the 1840s.
