Given that Poe's predilection for short forms of fiction is known to have motivated the majority of his writings, the status of The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym as his only completed novel forms an interesting development worthy of investigation. One of the most striking features of the novel is the discrepancy between physical phenomena and the protagonist's subjective interpretation of these. This study is concerned with the significance of Pym's perceptions particularly in those episodes which reveal the problematic relationship between appearance and reality evident in the character's constant misreading of events, as well as the tension between these two conflicting elements that underlies the movement of the text.
