The Wreck of the Titan

ByMorgan Robertson

Morgan Andrew Robertson (September 30, 1861–March 24, 1915) was a well-known American author of short stories and novels, and the self-claimed inventor of the periscope. He is best known for this short novel The Wreck of the Titan of Futility, first published in 1898. This story features an enormous British passenger liner called the Titan, which, deemed to be unsinkable, carries an insufficient number of lifeboats. On a voyage in the month of April, the Titan hits an iceberg and sinks in the North Atlantic, resulting in the loss of almost everyone on board. There are some similarities to the real-life sinking of the RMS Titanic. The book was published fourteen years before the Titanic hit an iceberg and settled on the bottom of the North Atlantic. Kean Guides are developed to provide great books at a reasonable price.
