The literary life of an infamous ship

The best stories write themselves. That’s what authors often say. And the disaster of the RMS Titanic in April 1912 is one of these, so rich in perspectives and human interest — the social classes aboard, the elegance and technology of the ship, the disaster and missed chances to avert it — that the story seems to unfold with all the doom and precision of a Greek tragedy.
