The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym moves from the American coast to mutiny in mid-ocean, from shipwreck on a savage island towards the then unknown South pole. Eureka, by contrast, tackles the sublime subject of the universe: how it works and how it will end. The narrator, like a detective, analyses the ‘plot of God’; and this cosmic text becomes a model against which the enigmas of Pym are illuminated.
