Question of saranou (10.26.2015): Why have pirates become heroes of novels and movies?
Long John Silver by Matthieu Lauffray A: Any subject can be inspiration for a novel, film, documentary.

Robert Louis StevensonRobert Louis Stevensonís (1850-1894) masterpiece novel Treasure Island opened the door to many novels and several movie adaptations. The universe of pirates in R.L. Stevensonís novel is superbly described:
- treasure hunting in a cursed island wet and stuffy atmosphere,
- bloodthirsty pirates,
- the heroís courage,
the mysterious Long John Silver...

This universe has inspired many novelists, archaeologists, and filmmakers who changed the image of the terrible pirate to the hero of the seven seas!

Daniel DefoeDaniel Defoe (1660-1731) did a lot to give true information about the pirates of the golden age of piracy. He is the author of Robinson Crusoe.
The memoires of the surgeon Alexandre Olivier Oexmelin Flibuste (1646 ~ 1707) are also a reference.
