The Flying Dutchman by Howard Pyle

“…delirium, induced by gazing too long on this damned infernal pack that seems like Vanderdecken [The Flying Dutchman] in a less desolate sea doomed to drift to & fro till the Crack of Doom splits N. & S. E. & W. into a thousand million fragments — & the sooner the better. No animal life! — no land! — no nothing!!!”

— Frank Worsley
