Na madrugada do dia 15 de Abril de 1912 naufragou, no Atlântico Norte, o navio transatlântico Titanic

Willy Stöwer (1864-1931)

Na noite de 14 de abril de 1912, durante a sua viagem inaugural em Southampton, na Inglaterra, com destino a Nova Iorque, o navio transatlântico Titanic chocou com um iceberg no Oceano Atlântico às 23.40, e afundou duas horas e quarenta minutos depois, na madrugada do dia 15 de abril de 1912.

Em 1898, Morgan Robertson, escreveu Futilidade, ou o Naufrágio de Titan (Título Original: Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan ). A história apresenta o transatlântico Titan, que se afunda no Atlântico Norte, após de bater num iceberg. O Titan e o seu naufrágio foram anotados por ser muito semelhante à vida real dos passageiros do navio RMS Titanic, que afundou 14 anos mais tarde pela mesma causa.
Embora a novela tenha sido escrita antes da contrução do navio Titanic, há muitas coincidências entre os dois navios — tanto na novela como na realidade, Abril foi o mês da catástrofe. Na ficção haviam 3.000 passgeiros; na realidade eram 2.207. Na ficção haviam 24 salva-vidas; na realidade eram apenas 20.
Considerar Morgan Robertson um vidente é pura e simplemente ridículo.


  1. Claro que é ridículo! No caso foi uma ficção que antecedeu uma realidade semelhante, mas daí até o escritor ser vidente ou visionário vai um grande passo...

    Não conhecendo o livro, o que acho mais extraordinário nesta história foi a arrogância dos homens em considerar aquele barco invencível, equipado com todos os instrumentos modernos da época, para afundar logo na viagem inaugural devido a um iceberg. Quer dizer, se fosse devido a um monstro marinho desconhecido, extra-terrestres ou coisa, pronto, era algo que nunca podiam ter imaginado. Mas mesmo em 1912 todos sabiam que existiam icebergs, tempestades, maremotos, etc,, não eram novidade para ninguém. Um pouco mais de humildade não teriam feito mal nenhum... ;)

    Beijocas e bons sonhos!

  2. Os homens passam a vida a dizer parvoíces! Assim foi com o Titanic.
    Também John Lennon disse um dia que os Beatles eram mais populares que Cristo.

  4. Quem clicar no título original: Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan pode ler a novela em inglês.

  5. Ler a novela em inglês não me parece boa ideia, já que não domino a língua.
    Huum...talvez peça ao meu tradutor particular.
    Impressionou-me muito a história desastrosa deste navio e ainda mais, como diz a Teté, a extrema arrogância dos que o consideram invencível. Como se, aos olhos da natureza, houvesse alguma coisa invencível.
