Chapter two investigates the inner world of emotions. The armed forces (and particularly the navy) expected recruits to conduct themselves according to emotional conventions. Mutiny broke those norms of emotional behaviour. To understand mutineer subjectivity then, it is necessary to outline military emotionology and the role of emotions in the mutiny. Fear and anger emerge at the breaking point of mutiny and feature as the most common emotions cited in mutineer accounts. These two emotions highlight the need to consider emotions as a relationship of mind and body, with mutineers recording the corporal effects of these emotions. If fear and anger punctuate the course of the mutiny at specific points, a broader emotional sequence underpins the cycle of protest and its aftermath. The pattern of hope, joy and despair is discernible and this evolution has considerable importance for the turn of events themselves and their afterlives.
