For the first time in 50 years, I have just finished rereading Mutiny on the Bounty. After all that time, it still retained its vividness and pace. It remains a great adventure story. And it still appeals to me.

A few things to remark upon regarding what I see in its origins and structure:

First, the power of the storytelling is immense. The narrative is clean, punctuated with just the right moves to advance to the next level of the tale. I'm imagining that the strong structure of the novel is due to Nordhoff more than Hall. At least that is the point Paul Briand made in his double biography of the two authors--that Nordhoff at the beginning of their partnership and later supplied the discipline that Hall needed.

Second, early in his career Nordhoff became a successful author of boys adventures books. There is a trace of that lingering in Mutiny on the Bounty. But with the narration of Mutiny being through the eyes of young Roger Byam, having a touch of the boys adventure creep into the pages actually works to the benefit of giving the novel its verisimilitude.

Third, the syntax, vocabulary, rhythm of the language seems perfectly to fit to the 18th century subject matter. There is a touch of the archaic to it that is effective in detail and in overall effect.

------------------------------
Now, below, is the review I made of Mutiny on the Bounty some years ago. This is how I remembered it. Turns out that my memory was strong and accurate, for I still stand by it.

This is what I read for adventure when I was twelve years old. Still a good choice. Inspired by the Clark Gable/Charles Laughton film, I found my way to the trilogy and discovered Men Against the Sea and Pitcairn's Island to be the equal of the first book. Together, all three volumes elevate the story of the mutineers and their captain to mythological heights, all the while providing fertile ground for the germination of the South Sea idyll stories that followed in its wake, both on film and in literature. I've yet to read Caroline Alexander's The Bounty: The True Story of the Mutiny on the Bounty, which apparently debunks much of that earlier romantic myth-making, especially concerning the character and motivations of the principals. No, this version is to deeply etched into my memory to disturb, I think. ( )

Based on the facts of the mutiny on the Bounty, the person telling the story is fictional, but is modeled after Peter Heywood. I find this story really sad. ( )

Mutiny on the Bounty, is narrated by Byam, the fictional midshipman played by Franchot Tone in the film; the Bligh of the book is if anything even more monstrous than the Bligh of the film, and the confusion of the mutiny itself - a ten-minute spurt of late-night impulse which had long-lasting effects - better conveyed. The Tahitians are referred to invariably as "Indians", but otherwise treated as a dignified culture which the English sailors disrupt by their presence; the only cannibal joke is directed against the cheapskate purveyors of Portsmouth, who allegedly look out for black sailors to add to their mix.

However, it's an anti-Semitic novel - an aspect completely dropped from the film. At Spithead, when we first encounter the Bounty, "sharp-faced Jews, in their wherries, hovered alongside, eager to lend money at interest against pay day, or to sell on credit the worthless trinkets on their trays" and the second in command declares that "I'd like to sink the lot of those Jews". Samuel, Bligh's clerk, is described as "a smug, tight-lipped little man, of a Jewish cast of countenance" and later explicitly as "a London Jew". In fact, the real Samuel appears to have been from Edinburgh, where a George Samuel was a burgess in 1699; so this anti-Semitism is entirely gratuitously introduced to the historical record by Nordhoff and Hall. (As indeed are many of Bligh's portrayed acts of tyranny.)

Given what is said about so many historical characters, it's a bit odd that Nordhoff and Hall chose to disguise the real midshipman Peter Heywood as the fictional Alexander Byam.

One of the shock moments in the film is that when the Pandora comes to Tahiti to arrest the mutineers, it turns out that Bligh is in command. In the book, as in history, he was by then on another assignment elsewhere. Otherwise the film sticks pretty closely to the book. ( )

The British are frequently criticized by other nations for their dislike of change, and indeed we love England for those aspects of nature and life which change the least.
