Email Address: Article Id: Jamaica Inn is a novel by the English writer Daphne du Maurier , first published in It was later made into a film, also called Jamaica Inn , directed by Alfred Hitchcock. It is an eerie period piece set in Cornwall in ; the real Jamaica Inn still exists and is a pub in the middle of Bodmin Moor.
Jamaica Inn tells the story of year-old Mary Yellan, who was brought up on a farm in. Against her better judgement, Mary becomes attracted to Joss's younger brother, Jem, a petty thief, but less brutal than his big brother.
After Mary realises that Joss is the leader of a band of wreckers and even overhears Joss ordering the murder of one of their members, she is unsure whether to trust Jem or not. She turns to Francis Davey, the albino vicar of the neighbouring village of Altarnun , who happened to find Mary when she got lost one day on the moor. Mary and Jem leave the moors for Christmas Eve and spend a day together in the town of Launceston , during which Jem sells a horse he stole from Squire Bassat back to the squire's unwitting wife.
When it comes time to return to Jamaica Inn, Jem leaves Mary to get the jingle,  but never returns. Mary has no way to get home except by walking, but when she attempts this realises the weather and distance make it impossible.
At this point Francis Davey passes her on the road in a hired coach and offers her a lift home. He leaves the coach at the crossroads to walk to Altarnun. The coach is then waylaid by her uncle's band of wreckers, and the coach driver is killed. Mary is forced to go along with the wreckers and has to watch as they 'wreck' - tricking a ship into steering itself on to the rocks and then murdering the survivors of the shipwreck as they swim ashore.
A few days later, Jem comes to speak with Mary, who is locked in her room at the inn.

The vicar arrives at the inn, having received a note Mary left for him that afternoon, and offers her refuge for the night. The next day, Mary finds a drawing by the vicar; she is shocked to see that he has drawn himself as a wolf while the members of his congregation have heads of sheep.
The vicar returns, tells Mary that Jem was the one who informed on Joss. Realizing that she has seen the drawing, the vicar then reveals that he was the true head of the wrecker gang and the murderer of Joss and her Aunt Patience, and he tries to escape with Mary as his hostage. The vicar goes on to explain that he tried to find faith in the Christian Church but did not, setting his faith instead in the ancient Druid following.
As they flee across the moor to try to reach a ship to sail to Spain, Squire Bassat and Jem lead a search party that closes the gap, eventually coming close enough for Jem to shoot the vicar and rescue Mary.
Mary has an offer to work as a servant for the Bassats, but instead plans to return to Helford. One day as she walks on the moor, she comes across Jem, leading a cart with all of his possessions, headed in the other direction from Helford. After some discussion, Mary decides to abandon Helford to go with Jem. The film differs from the book in some respects, with Francis Davey being replaced by a Squire Pengallon Laughton.
