Description

Malcolm Lowry, who would permanently stake his claim to literary immortality with the masterpieceA Under the Volcano, wroteA Ultramarine, his debut, as an undergraduate at Cambridge. Displaying the linguistic virtuosity and haunting imagery that became signatures of Lowry's mature style,A Ultramarine, a novel he continually rewrote and revised from publication until his death, is one of his central works, and this new edition offers the opportunity for a fuller assessment of his place in the modern canon.UltramarineA is the story of Dana Hilliot's first voyage, as mess-boy on the freighterA Oedipus TyrannusA bound for Bombay and Singapore: of his struggle to win the approval of his shipmates, trying to match their example in the bars and bordellos of the Chinese ports while at the same time remaining faithful to his first love, Janet, back home in England. Alternating between Dana's own narrative and the ribald humor and colorful language of the seamen's conversation,A UltramarineA depicts a boy's initiation into the company of men.
