Notorious for his crimes and cruel actions Captain Sharkey is the character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to describe the adventurous world of piracy. Captain Sharkey is the pirate with “filmy blue eyes” feared by all mariners and traders sailing though the Caribbean Seas. His deeds (azioni) are known everywhere and no one dares challenge him. Only another ex- pirate tries to trick and capture him, but uselessly. The Adventures of Captain Sharkey inspired The movies Pirates of the Caribbean and many other writers of the genre including Michael Crichton’Pirates Latitude, his last book.
