Annotation

Annotates and comments, often line by line, on familiar and obscure details and allusions to the people, places, things, events, and other references found in the story. Opens with a discussion of the story's composition and publication history and critical reception before moving into an explication beginning with the title and closing with the story's final sentence capturing the theme of the volume's title. Covers topics such as the history of the 1919 tropical cyclone that sank the Valbanera (likely model for the story), tale-within-a-tale structure, and symbolism of the jewfish and wreck's flotsam.
