Riassunto: For centuries, humankind has wondered what is "out there" and has embarked on countless voyages to find out. This book traces the history and literature of the imaginary voyage--stories of mariners journeying through uncharted waters to find strange and marvelous sights. Well-told tales of adventurous journeys--The Odyssey, The Aeneid, Gulliver's Travels, Robinson Crusoe, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea--conjure up images that transcend our mundane landscapes. Through the overlapping spheres of history, geography, cosmography and literary criticism, this book examines the mystique of what lies just over the horizon.The author traces the imaginary voyage genre of literature back to the ancient Egyptians and Homer up through the Age of Exploration and the modern lost civilization mode. Descriptions include, literary, historical and quasi-geographical notions of sea voyages to realms both imagined and actual with comparisons between the sea voyage and fictional and real space travel. It also includes a discussion of modern efforts to actualize the fantasy voyage, such as expeditionary cruise ships, explorer yachts, residential/condo ships, floating cities, flying boats, dirigibles and "aero-trekking".Table of Contents

From the Author: My interest in the imaginary voyage genre stems from my early (around age 11) reading of Gulliver's Travels and Robinson Crusoe, both of which my untutored mind assumed to be records of actual voyages. Living on the American Atlantic seaboard during my formative years also inspired my fascination with what was hidden behind the seam where sea met sky. I have since had the opportunity to read more widely about extraordinary traveling upon the oceans and am pleased to share my insights and discoveries with readers who may similarly have been mesmerized by sailor yarns and fictionalists' fantasies. I also "messed about in boats" during much of my adolescent years and often trained high powered Navy surplus binoculars on the horizon where I imagined all manner of phantom craft between sightings of real ships traversing the fickle Atlantic ocean.
