* AuthorAvatar: "Arthur Gordon Pym" and "Edgar Allan Poe" share the same number of letters, and nearly echo each other. Pym's backstory also largely mirrors Poe's, from his falling apart with his family, the encounter with his grandfather, and the fraternal relationship with Augustus, who is loosely based on Poe's older brother. Both Poe's brother and Augustus share [[spoiler: the date of their deaths]].

* PlotHole:
** One character would not tell Pym a certain fact until "many years elapsed." This character dies a few chapters later.

to:

* PlotHole:
PlotHole: The novel has several, very amateurish examples of this. Considering the skill of [[Creator/EdgarAllanPoe the author]] it's most likely intentional, though scholars can't agree on why.

Added DiffLines:

The novel is also notable for having the (oft-overlooked) quality of being a very early example of post-modern fiction.
