Summary A Dictionary of Sea Quotations surveys nearly four millennia of literature, including novels, poems, songs and religious texts, to show the extraordinary diversity of the human experience of the sea, the passions that it awakens and the hold it has on our imagination. Historian Edward Duyker 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.
