MS. Found in a Bottle is an adventure short story by Edgar Allan Poe that first appeared in the May 1833 edition of Baltimore Saturday Visiter. The plot follows an unnamed narrator at sea who finds himself in a series of harrowing circumstances—a storm, a dead crew, an out of control ship. As he nears his own disastrous death while his ship drives ever southward, to an unimaginable destination, he writes a manuscript telling of his adventures, which he casts into the sea. Some critics believe this story was meant as a satire of typical sea tales.
