Seas are a body of saltwater smaller than the oceans of Planet Earth. The seas appear in human culture in contradictory ways, both powerful but serene and as beautiful but dangerous. It has its place in literature, art, poetry, film, theatre, classical music, mythology and dream interpretation. Sometimes it is there just as a gentle background but often it introduces such themes as storms, shipwrecks, battle, hardship, disaster, the dashing of hopes and death. In his epic poem the Odyssey, written in the 8th century BC, Homer describes the ten-year voyage of the Greek hero Odysseus who struggles to return home across the sea’s many hazards after the war described in the Iliad.
