It was said that anyone who gazed into her face (which was painted onto a wooden “mummy-board” or inner coffin lid) would suffer agonizing consequences. Based on the series of events that led up to the sinking, the book goes on to record the experiences of those who survived. A final chapter examines the shipwreck today, which has been visited underwater by explorers, scientists and film-makers, and many artifacts recovered as the old liner steadily disintegrates. The remainder of the book deals with facts and myths attached to the voyage, and analyses the memoirs and essays of the survivors recounting the finer details of what took place on the night the Titanic sank.
