Prior to this, my knowledge of the Flying Dutchman myth was his appearance in an episode of LAND OF THE LOST when I was a kid, and general knowledge that a lush filmed version had been made So, at my day job, I was looking at material to include in a forthcoming GOTHIC story e-book collection we like to throw in some novels as bonuses , and I decided to process this classic Gothic novel about the Flying Dutchman, as it was long on my reading list anyway so why not kill two birds with one stone?

It should be noted early on that despite curses and ghostly ships and magic rituals and even a werewolf! And what a Gothic novel it is! Our main character, Philip Vanderdecken - a brooding, violent youth, quick to anger - is told of an ages-old ghostly visitation to his mother by her seafaring husband.

The Captain cursed God in the teeth of a storm and now is fated to sail the seas until Judgment Day, an ill omen to all sailors, unless his son can track him down in his spectral wanderings and present him a sacred relic, a piece of the True Cross, upon which he must weep in contrition.

Huge and sprawling, this book takes in many events and characters. Mynheer Poots the greedy, conniving doctor and his beautiful, exotic Arabic daughter Amine raised as a Muslim and tutored in occult magic by her Mother , Schriften a sardonic, one-eyed sailor - "It was not a man with one eye, but one eye with a man attached to it" - forever tittering and cruelly taunting, turning up like a bad penny at the worst of times and possessed of more knowledge than he lets on , Krantz a stalwart friend of Philip, with his own mysterious background and Father Mathias who takes it upon himself to council and convert Amine.

There are as might be expected shipwrecks and storms, desert islands and castaways and naval battles, but also skullduggery and greed and even Amine Vanderdecken nee Poots is, in fact, a fascinating character - bold, resourceful, forthright and courageous she rallies the crew of a storm tossed ship at one point, purely through her strength of character she is also "other" - a woman, a Muslim and a practitioner of "heathen" magic. She even argues the case for suicide at one point! A scene where she renounces Christianity after honestly considering it but judging the religion by the actions of its followers as she is cast adrift in the ocean, is well done.

Two minor notes - a chapter from this book is often excerpted as "The White Wolf Of The Hartz Mountains" when sailor Krantz reveals his own background involving evil forest spirits and werewolves and appears in many anthologies - it was nice to finally read it in context here, although the final disposition of Krantz in the narrative following his story is surprisingly perfunctory.

In all honesty, this was one of the most entertaining Gothic novels I have ever read! La prosa de inicios del XIX se hace un poco pesada y grandilocuente. La primera parte del libro puede llegar a aburrir por los vaivenes del argumento pero la segunda mitad se convierte en un relato de aventuras marineras que enganchan.

Schneller und leichtgewichtiger wird er dann in den Seepassagen, die unendlich viel besser sind als die Kapitel, die zu Lande spielen. Die eBook-Aufbereitung ist als gelungen zu bezeichnen - einige falsch gesetzte Absatzwechsel sind zu verkraften.
