The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket

Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym

How do the difficulties of writing the note and reading the note relate to other depictions of writing in Poe’s other work, as in “The Gold Bug” and the encountering of the shapes that could be writing later in the novella? What might be the significance behind Poe’s fascination with the borderline or liminal area between legibility and illegibility?
