Description

The Voyage of the Francis is a short story about a sailboat that embarks on a fishing trip. The story-telling technique used by Arthur can be attributed to his young age. There are certainly elements of plot – a storm, fishing, jumping overboard, sleeping on a rock, playing an odd game of tag, etc. – but they seem to form only a skeletal story, made up primarily of movement from big event to big event, without much imagined emotion or transition in between.
