Beschreibung

Autorentext

Captain Frederick Marryat (1792 - 1848) was a British Royal Navy officer, a novelist and an acquaintance of Charles Dickens. He is noted today as an early pioneer of the sea story, particularly for his semi-autobiographical novel Mr Midshipman Easy (1836), for his children's novel The Children of the New Forest (1847) and for a widely used system of maritime flag signalling, known as Marryat's Code. From 1832 to 1835, Marryat edited The Metropolitan Magazine. Additionally, he kept producing novels; his biggest success came with Mr Midshipman Easy in 1836. He lived in Brussels for a year, traveled in Canada and the United States, then moved to London in 1839, where he was in the literary circle of Charles Dickens and others. He was in North America in 1837 when the Rebellion of that year broke out in Lower Canada and served with the British forces in suppressing it.



Klappentext

Marryat had an extraordinary gift for the invention of episodes in his stories. He says somewhere that when he sat down for the day's work, he never knew what he was going to write. He certainly was a literary genius.
"The Privateersman" was published in 1846, the twenty-third book to flow from Marryat's pen. Privateering is legalized piracy at sea.
