درباره کتاب Rites of Passage :
The first volume of William Golding’s Sea Trilogy.
“Rites of Passage” is a novel written by William Golding and is the first book in his “Sea Trilogy.” The novel is set in the early 19th century and follows the story of Edmund Talbot, a young man who is traveling on a ship called the “The Ship of Fools” from England to Australia.
Sailing to Australia in the early years of the nineteenth century, Edmund Talbot keeps a journal to amuse his godfather back in England. Full of wit and disdain, he records the mounting tensions on the ancient, stinking warship where officers, sailors, soldiers and emigrants jostle in the cramped spaces below decks. Then a single passenger, the obsequious Reverend Colley, attracts the animosity of the sailors, and in the seclusion of the fo’castle something happens to bring him into a ‘hell of degradation’, where shame is a force deadlier than the sea itself.
During the journey, Talbot encounters a diverse cast of characters, including the ship’s captain, Mr. Anderson, and a group of emigrants who are being transported to Australia as part of a penal colony. The novel explores themes of class, power, and morality, as Talbot grapples with his own privilege and the harsh realities of life on board the ship.
As the journey progresses, tensions rise between the passengers and crew, culminating in a dramatic event that forces Talbot to confront his own beliefs and values. The novel ends with Talbot arriving in Australia, forever changed by his experiences on the ship.
Overall, “Rites of Passage” is a powerful and thought-provoking novel that explores themes of identity, morality, and power in a unique and engaging way. It is a classic work of literature and an excellent introduction to William Golding’s writing.
