ON 12 May 1876 Lieutenant Albert Markham planted the Union Flag farther north
than anyone had ever stood before. British interest in polar exploration had
diminished after the excesses of the search for Franklin, but, thanks in no small
measure to the efforts of Albert's cousin Clements, the Royal Navy had been
persuaded to send two ships to the Arctic in 1875, Alert and Discovery, under the
command of George Nares. Markham reached 83° 20' N when, blighted by
scurvy, his party ...

Following Hall's success, Britain sent forth one final polar expedition in 1875,
under the command of George Strong Nares (1831- 1915). Nares set a new
record for penetrating farthest north, though his record was not much further than
Hall's, and his famous declaration that there was “no thoroughfare” marked the
end of British Arctic exploration. It was left for an American, Robert Edwin Peary (
1856- 1920), to take up the polar obsession, which held him in its grip from the
early 1890s ...

attainment could add little or nothing to human knowledge. To the public,
however, the prospect of these heroic and intensely personal endeavors was
most exhilarating. During ...

minor obsession : the fact that he is fascinated with his own name, fascinated with
a kind of schoolboy intensity at the odd prank of fate which relates him to all other
Greenes by the trick of nominal identity. Some readers will remember in the
Mexican travel book, The Lawless Roads, Greene's curiosity and delight when he
was told by the police chief in the capital of Tabasco: "You've come home. Why,
everybody in Villa- hermosa is called Greene — or Graham." They will recall his
