Description : Visitors to the Arctic enter places that have been traditionally imagined as otherworldly. This strangeness fascinated audiences in nineteenth-century Britain when the idea of the heroic explorer voyaging through unmapped zones reached its zenith. The Spectral Arctic re-thinks our understanding of Arctic exploration by paying attention to the importance of dreams and ghosts in the quest for the Northwest Passage. The narratives of Arctic exploration that we are all familiar with today are just the tip of the iceberg: they disguise a great mass of mysterious and dimly lit stories beneath the surface. In contrast to oft-told tales of heroism and disaster, this book reveals the hidden stories of dreaming and haunted explorers, of frozen mummies, of rescue balloons, visits to Inuit shamans, and of the entranced female clairvoyants who travelled to the Arctic in search of John Franklin’s lost expedition. Through new readings of archival documents, exploration narratives, and fictional texts, these spectral stories reflect the complex ways that men and women actually thought about the far North in the past. This revisionist historical account allows us to make sense of current cultural and political concerns in the Canadian Arctic about the location of Franklin’s ships.

Not illustrated. Excerpt: ... he buried there), putting his small Ship in the foremost and Baracadoe them both (with Piles of Firre and earth) from storme of Snow, Ice, Raine, Floods, or what else might fall. He wintered in his Ship and kept 3 fires all the Winter, but lost many men,1 and yet was supplied with great store of white Partridges2 and other Fowle, of which I have heard it credibly reported that this company killed 1800 dozen in the Winter season.3 The report of Captaine Hawkridge.* HE entered in the South Channell, seeing the South shore within Fretum Hudson, neere Hope's advance twice or thrice, and once trying the tide about [the] Savage lies, where it came from the South East & flowed 3 fathoms. as to the origin and history of Nelson, and says he was mate in the Resolution; but whence he derives his information, I cannot discover.--C. 1 Hawkridge also mentions this mortality. Moreover, Purchas {his Pilgrimage, 4th ed., 1626, p. 819) says he had heard that Button had "much misery of sickness in his wintering." This mortality must have begun after the commencement of the New Year; for Edward Glanville, writing apparently on December 22nd, speaks of their having been preserved from all dangers whatsoever. Purchas adds that Button " was forced to quit the great ship" (the Resolution), but none of those whose narratives Foxe prints allude in any way to this circumstance.--C. * See p. 134.--C. 3 Here ends the information supplied by Prickett. The following narrative by Captain Hawkridge is much more detailed.--C. * He was one of Button's two volunteer companions, according to Barrow (Voyages into the Arctic Regions, p. 196) and Rundall (Voyages towards the North- West, p. 84), but I can discover no actual basis for the statement. Nothing seems to be known of his previous history or ...

Description : “All hands on deck to witness punishment!” Although whippings of men have been a commonly-depicted punishment in the movies ever since the days of the nickelodeon, no book -- until now -- has attempted to document this vital aspect of screen-sadism. By describing and then discussing the movie’s hundred great male-whipping scenes, (ranging from 1932’s Mask of Fu Manchu to 2004’s Passion of the Christ and featuring such famous actors as Burt Lancaster, Alan Ladd, Elvis Presley, and John Wayne), Lash! tries to fill this void with wit, perception, and authority.
