Summary

Eleven years after the disappearance of Edgar Allan Poe’s Arthur Gordon Pym aboard the Jane, wealthy American Jeorling is returning to the United States on the Halbrane when it encounters an iceberg on which is found a note indicating the fate of the Jane and its crew. The crew of the Halbrane, under the leadership of Captain Guy (brother to the captain of the Jane), undertakes to find and rescue the Jane’s remaining crew.

Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, Jules Verne intended An Antarctic Mystery to complete the mystery of Pym’s fate, which was left open at the conclusion of Poe’s original work. A high-sea adventure, An Antarctic Mystery takes readers to the very edge of the world, where the mystery of Arthur Gordon Pym’s fate is eventually revealed.
