The sea is double sided mother nature which has life and death, and also a space of communication. It is all living organism's home based on abundant water which is essential for living.

People who explored the sea early commanded maritime power so that became the center of world and created a lot of maritime literature based on experiences and creativity.

Literature which is written based on lives surrounding the sea is called Maritime Literature.

Seas in literature is expressed the unknown world of imagination, unpredictable space of adventure, stage to challenge of human limitations, etc.
