About the Book

A former captain in the Royal Navy named Frederick Marryat wrote the 1836 book Mr. Midshipman Easy. The Napoleonic Wars, in which Marryat personally distinguished himself, are when the book is set. Despite his preconceptions, the main character Easy grows into a capable officer in the course of the narrative. After his mother passes away, Easy finds his father to be absolutely insane when he gets home. The device Easy Senior created to shrink or enlarge phrenological bumps on the skull kills him as he tries to do so with his own benevolent bump. When his father's servants are removed, it will be simple for him to put the estate in order, collect back rent from the tenants, and expel any who refuse to pay. He formally leaves the fleet, equips his own privateering ship with his newly acquired fortune, and sails back to Sicily to reunite with his bride Agnes. Her family is unable to reject him because he is no longer a junior midshipman but a wealthy gentleman, and he and Agnes go on to have a happily ever after. The book was turned into two adventure movies in the UK: Midshipman Easy, directed by Maurice Elvey in 1915.

About Author

Frederick Marryat

Captain Frederick Marryat, a Royal Navy officer, author, and friend of Charles Dickens, lived from 10 July 1792 until 9 August 1848. Because of his semi-autobiographical work Mr. Midshipman Easy, he is regarded as an early pioneer of nautical fiction (1836). His children's book The Children of the New Forest (1847) and the Marryat's Code, a commonly used method of nautical flag signaling, are well remembered. The son of Joseph Marryat, a "commercial prince," a member of Parliament, a slave owner, and an opponent of abolition, and his American wife Charlotte, née von Geyer, Marryat was born in Great George Street, Westminster, London.
