The Flying Dutchman

Posted in Johnny Depp, movies by Anna Maria Polidori on February 6, 2017

As we know this one will be one of the ships protagonists of Pirates 5 and so let’s try to see what there is behind this legend.

Sometimes it’s destiny.

And it was what happened to the captain of The Flying Dutchman when on 1641 he was cursed by a supernatural creature. Captain Van Der Decken was at Cape of Good Hope. He had left from Holland with his ship, he worked for the Dutch East India Company for affording and bringing to Holland a lot of things and foods from the distant Indies. Spices at that time a rarity able to make rich a sailor who would have stolen two or three nutmegs and sold them to some important and rich man once returned home as remembers Giles Milton in Nathaniels Nutmeg.

During a night of torments, in which captain Van Der Decken was drunk and there was also a tempest and crazy wind and big and dangerous waves, he decided to pass through the Cape of Good Hope although crew and passengers admonished him: “Please, don’t continue. Please choose another route. Use your compass wisely, captain.”

But the captain was firm in the purpose to continue although waves always more tall and conditions always more scaring and precarious.
He returned once in his cabin and once again out he discovered that the various sailors had decided to boycott him taking the complete control of the ship.
Mutiny.
If the captain was insane someone had to do something thought the rest of the scared people in that ship.

But captain van der Decken didn’t accept any sorta of dialogue and killed without thinking twice the leader of the rebellion.

He threw from the ship the body of the unfortunate leader man and sailor without too many compliments, giving it to the Ocean for resting in peace, but… when the body of this man touched the cold sea of the Ocean, a voice of a supernatural creature told him that, because of his behavior he would have been cursed forever, and his crew would have been composed not anymore by men but by dead men, ghosts because of what he did and because he tried to be a God.

Most famous artists interested at  the Flying Dutchman with the time.
Richard Wagner with The Flying Dutchman, but also Coleridge, Walter Scott and on July 11 1881 the future King George V with his brother Albert Victor of Wales saw this ship in Australia.

Yes: it’s possible to seeing this cursed ship in various part of the world, not just at Cape of Good Hope.

Scientists will insist that this one is just a vision and that like mermaids there is nothing, but I want to believe that somewhere exists the Flying Dutchman and that the captain of this ship is still angry with the world, that he can’t touch any land for any reason, that he is heartless and that he is surrounded by a group of peaceless dead men as a crew. Because dreaming sometimes is more than necessary and the dimension of dream the only one able to keep us alive in a too materialistic and sad world.
