Their friendliness, however, turns out to be a ruse and on the eve of the ship's proposed departure, the natives ambush the crew in a narrow gorge. Everyone except Pym and Peters is slaughtered, and the Jane Guy is overrun and burned by the malevolent tribe.

Pym and Peters hide in the mountains surrounding the site of the ambush. They discover a labyrinth of passages in the hills with strange marks on the walls, and disagree about whether these are the result of artificial or natural causes. Facing a shortage of food, they make a desperate run and steal a pirogue from the natives, narrowly escaping from the island and taking one of its inhabitants prisoner.
The small boat drifts farther south on a current of increasingly warm water, which has become milky white in color. After several days they encounter a rain of ashes and then observe a huge cataract of fog or mist, which splits open to accommodate their entrance upon approach.
The native dies as a huge shrouded white figure appears before them. Here the novel ends abruptly. A short post-scriptural note, ostensibly written by the book's editors, explains that Pym was killed in an accident and speculates his final two or three chapters were lost with him, though assuring the public the chapters will be restored to the text if found.
The note further explains that Peters is alive in Illinois but cannot be interviewed at present. The editors then compare the shapes of the labyrinth and the wall marks noted by Pym to Arabian and Egyptian letters and hieroglyphs with meanings of "Shaded", "White", and "Region to the South".
In order to present the tale as an authentic exploration, Poe used a number of the travel journals that proliferated at the time he was writing the novel. Poe probably read this history in an book by R. Thomas, Remarkable Events and Remarkable Shipwrecks , from which he quotes verbatim. In addition to historical sources, Poe was influenced by other writers. This theory, which he presented as early as , was taken seriously throughout the nineteenth century.
Found in a Bottle ",  based partly on Symmes' Theory of the Concentric Spheres , published in Found in a Bottle" is similar to Poe's novel in setting, characterization, and some elements of plot. Frank Baum. In describing life on a long sea voyage, Poe also drew from personal experience.
Allan wrote, "Edgar says Pa say something for me, say I was not afraid of the sea. Scholar Scott Peeples wrote that it is "at once a mock nonfictional exploration narrative, adventure saga, bildungsroman , hoax , largely plagiarized travelogue, and spiritual allegory " and "one of the most elusive major texts of American literature. Hutchisson writes that the plot both "soars to new heights of fictional ingenuity and descends to new lows of silliness and absurdity".
One reason for the confusion comes from many continuity errors throughout the novel. For example, Pym notes that breaking a bottle while trapped in the hold saved his life because the sound alerted Augustus to his presence while searching.

However, Pym notes that Augustus did not tell him this until "many years elapsed", even though Augustus is dead eight chapters later. Novelist John Barth notes, for example, that the midway point of the novel occurs when Pym reaches the equator , the midway point of the globe.
Scholar Shawn Rosenheim believes that the use of hieroglyphs in the novel served as a precursor to Poe's interest in cryptography. Found in a Bottle", Pym is undertaking this trip on purpose. Poe also presents the effects of alcohol in the novel.
The opening episode, for example, shows that intoxicated people can sometimes seem entirely sober and then, suddenly, the effects of alcohol show through. Even nature seems unnatural. Water, for example, is very different at the end of the novel, appearing either colorful or "unnaturally clear. Elements of the novel are often read as autobiographical. Interpreted this way, the protagonist is actually sailing away from himself, or his ego. Dates are also relevant to this autobiographical reading.
According to the text, Pym arrives at the island of Tsalal on January 19—Poe's birthday. One thread of critical analysis of this tale focuses on the possibly racist implications of Poe's plot and imagery. One such plot element is the black cook who leads the mutiny on the Grampus and is its most bloodthirsty participant. Additionally, the novel drew from prevalent assumptions during the time that dark-skinned people were somehow inherently inferior.
In her book Playing in the Dark: Whiteness and the Literary Imagination , Morrison discusses how the Africanist presence in the novel is used as an " Other " against which the author defines "white", "free", and "individual". The novel ends abruptly with the sudden appearance of a bizarre enshrouded figure having skin hued "of the perfect whiteness of the snow. The chasms that open throughout the sea in the final moments of the book derive from the Hollow Earth theory. The area closest to the Pole is also, surprisingly, warm rather than cold, as Symmes believed. Poe had intended to collect a number of his early short stories into a volume titled Tales of the Folio Club in the s.
An editor, James Kirke Paulding , tried to assist him in publishing this collection. They suggested, "if he will lower himself a little to the ordinary comprehension of the generality of readers, and prepare However, Poe retired from his role at the Messenger on January 3, , as the installments were being published;  some scholars suggest he was fired and this led him to abandoning the novel. After his marriage to Virginia Clemm , Poe spent the following winter and spring completing his manuscript for this novel in New York. A Fable". The novel was finally published in book form under the title The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket in July , although it did not include Poe's name and was instead presented as an account by Pym himself.

The first overseas publication of The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket appeared only a few months later when it was printed in London without Poe's permission, although the final paragraph was omitted. Fifteen months after its publication, it was reviewed by Lewis Gaylord Clark , a fellow author who carried on a substantial feud with Poe.
His review printed in The Knickerbocker  said the book was "told in a loose and slip-shod style, seldom chequered by any of the more common graces of composition. Many reviewers commented on the excess of violent scenes. The reviewer considered it a literary hoax and called it an "impudent attempt at humbugging the public"  and regretted "Mr. Poe's name in connexion with such a mass of ignorance and effrontery". Other reviews condemned the attempt at presenting a true story. Ich kann sehen, wie der Tanz der Wellen die Luft in Bewegung versetzt. Ich beobachte, wie der Wind von Schaumkamm zu Schaumkamm zieht.
