    His overall presence in the story is weak. He sets the setting of the story and it ends there. But for me it went much deeper than that. I am reminded of a Latin proverb, “A wise man learns from the mistakes of others, a fool from his own.” Robert was out in the arctic on a seafaring adventure to make some grand discovery.
