With the help of the captain’s son, Pym stows away on a whaling ship, the Grampus and is entombed without food and water in the hold for two weeks. The ending is not satisfying but because of what Pym has went through, it is enough for me. It is an archetypal American story of escape from domesticity tracing a young man’s rite of passage through a series of terrible brushes with death during a fateful sea voyage.
