Dumas, the Elder Was A Great Satirist March 21 2007
By Jonathan A. Weiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Captain Pampille sucessfuly utilises a narrative in a narrative to use the anthromophosising of animals as objects of love against the inhuman treatment of oppressed people. Based losely on an historical scam, drawing on American adventure stories and French society and art, the named protagonist tale is of Voltairian survival, Queeq sea management, and Ponzi sales. The animals are amusing and attractive. The portrait of abuse, authority, and cruelty devestating. Yet it is written smoothly, with great with an even charm. Hesperus Press should be praised for bringing this unknown gem to print.
