The Mystery of the Sea

The Mystery of the Sea (1902) is a novel by Irish author Bram Stoker. Combining occult elements with historical events involving the Spanish-American War and the 1588 defeat of the Spanish Armada, The Mystery of the Sea is an informed mystery and political thriller that helped to establish the Irish master of Gothic horror's reputation as a leading writer of the early-twentieth century.

On his first trip to Cruden Bay, a seaside village near Aberdeen, Scotland, a young Englishman named Archibald Hunter discovers his gift for second sight. This strange power grants him the ability to predict future events, as well as to see spirits. Trained by a local woman named Gormala MacNeil, who shares his powers, Hunter learns to control his second sight. When he returns to Cruden Bay a year later to live their permanently, he unwittingly purchases a trunk containing letters and documents dating back to the 16th century. With the help of Marjory Drake, a secretive American, he deciphers the letters to discover clues leading to the location of a secret treasure. Hidden by a Spaniard named Don Bernadino de Escoban following the English defeat of the Spanish Armada, the treasure has long been forgotten to all but Don Bernadino's descendants. Enveloped in layers of mystery, pulled into events involving ancient piracy and the Spanish-American War, Hunter must rely on his hidden powers and uncommon courage to save not only the woman he loves, but his life.

With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Bram Stoker's The Mystery of the Sea is a classic of Irish literature reimagined for modern readers.

Autoreninformationen

Bram Stoker (1847-1912) was an Irish novelist. Born in Dublin, Stoker suffered from an unknown illness as a young boy before entering school at the age of seven. He would later remark that the time he spent bedridden enabled him to cultivate his imagination, contributing to his later success as a writer. He attended Trinity College, Dublin from 1864, graduating with a BA before returning to obtain an MA in 1875. After university, he worked as a theatre critic, writing a positive review of acclaimed Victorian actor Henry Irving's production of Hamlet that would spark a lifelong friendship and working relationship between them. In 1878, Stoker married Florence Balcombe before moving to London, where he would work for the next 27 years as business manager of Irving's influential Lyceum Theatre. Between his work in London and travels abroad with Irving, Stoker befriended such artists as Oscar Wilde, Walt Whitman, Hall Caine, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In 1895, having published several works of fiction and nonfiction, Stoker began writing his masterpiece Dracula (1897) while vacationing at the Kilmarnock Arms Hotel in Cruden Bay, Scotland. Stoker continued to write fiction for the rest of his life, achieving moderate success as a novelist. Known more for his association with London theatre during his life, his reputation as an artist has grown since his death, aided in part by film and television adaptations of Dracula, the enduring popularity of the horror genre, and abundant interest in his work from readers and scholars around the world.
