About this title

Synopsis:

A dying, black sailor—the massive James Wait—boards the Narcissus and acts as a memento mori for his shipmates, eliciting pity and selfless compassion as well as fear, resentment, and a profound hatred. This powerful narrative captures every nuance of atmospheric tension, bringing the characters to life under the danger and stress of being at sea. El velero Narcissus inicia su regreso a casa de Bombay hacia Inglaterra, y el gigante negro James Wait se incorpora, muy enfermo, a la tripulación. Caprichoso y tirano, Wait agoniza al resto de los marinos, hechizados y solícitos ante aquella presencia ominosa y oscura. El mar, misterioso y cruel, pronto desata su furia y lleva a los hombres hasta los límites de su fuerza moral y física.
