HOWELLS, Richard. The Myth of the Titanic . New York: St. Martin's Press, (1999). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xii,1-213,(7), + 8 p. of plates. Illustrated 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "The first critical analysis of the Titanic as modern myth, this book focuses on the second of thetwo Titanics. The first was the physical Titanic, the rusting remnants of which can still be found twelve thousand feet below the north Atlantic. Thesecond is the mythical Titanic, which emerged just as its tangible predece ssor slipped from view on 15 April 1912. It is the second of the two Titanics which remains the more interesting and which continues to carry culturalresonances today. 'The Myth of the Titanic' begins with the launching of t he 'unsinkable ship' and ends with the outbreak of the 'war to end all wars'. It provides an insight into the particular culture of late Edwardian Britain and beyondd this draws far greater conclusions about the complex relationships between myth, history, popular culture and society as a whole." - from the dust jacket. Very good in dust jacket. Curiously relatively uncommon in hardcover. 35.00
