A Dictionary of Sea Quotations surveys nearly three millennia of literature, including novels, poems, songs, sacred texts and narrative prose, to show the extraordinary diversity of the human experience of the sea, the passions that it awakens and the hold it has on our imaginations. Historian Edward Duyker also draws upon the annals of sea exploration, the carnage of naval war, and excerpts from the memoirs of admirals, yachtsmen, castaways, naturalists, pirates, privateers, U-boat commanders, surfers and statesmen. There are quotations from the ancient Greeks and Romans; the Old and New Testaments and the ""Qur'an""; the plays of Shakespeare; the poetry of Baudelaire, Coleridge, Dickinson, Goethe and Lawrence; the novels of Austen, Conrad, Dickens, Hugo, Melville, Verne and a multitude of other writers. Within these pages there are voices from the mutiny on the Bounty, the sinking of the Titanic and the voyage of the Kon-Tiki. ""A Dictionary of Sea Quotations"" is an anthology of surprising breadth that is both a valuable reference work and a book to be enjoyed by all who love the sea.
