Overview

Written 14 years before the sinking of the Titanic, this brief novel tells the story of a transatlantic ship called Titan, which had been declared impossible to sink but does exactly that when it collides with an iceberg in the northern waters of the Atlantic. The tragic accident serves as the backdrop to the story of John Rowland, an alcoholic and former U.S. Navy officer who is working as a deckhand on the Titan when it sinks, and who saves the daughter of a former lover by jumping onto the iceberg with her. The two are faced with hardship and adventure on the iceberg—including a fight with a polar bear—until they are saved by a passing ship that returns them to the United States, where Rowland is able to improve his life and regain his position in society. The real-life Titanic and the Titan in this novel share many similarities, from their weight, length, and capacity to the fact that they were both exceedingly luxurious and carried an insufficient number of lifeboats.

Escrito 14 años antes del naufragio del Titanic, esta breve novela narra la historia de un transatlántico llamado Titán, el cual había sido declarado imposible de hundir pero hace precisamente eso cuando choca con un témpano en las aguas norteñas del Atlántico. El trágico accidente sirve como trasfondo para la historia de John Rowland, un alcohólico y un ex-oficial de la Marina estadounidense quien está trabajando como marinero de cubierta en el Titán cuando se hunde, y quien rescata a la hija de una ex-amante al saltar sobre el témpano con ella. Juntos se enfrentan a sufrimientos y aventuras sobre el témpano—incluyendo una pelea con un oso polar—hasta que son rescatados por un barco pasajero que los devuelve a los Estados Unidos, donde Rowland logra mejorar su vida y recobrar su posición social. El Titanic verdadero y el Titán de esta novela comparten muchas similitudes, desde su peso, longitud y capacidad de pasajeros hasta el hecho de que ambos eran sumamente lujosos y llevaban una cantidad insuficiente de botes salvavidas.
