With an introduction by David Hannay. English novelist who began writing after a distinguished career in the British Navy. From the Introduction: when Marryat composed "Peter Simple" in 1834, he had no need to do more than look back on his recollections of service in the Imperieuse and other ships during the great war...It will never be allowed by sound criticism that his knowledge of the sealife was Marryat's merit, and not merely his, and our, good fortunes. Yet his greatest admirer will hardly claim for him that he belonged to that highest class of novelists who can create characters which live by their mere human truth...His recollections supplied him with a great deal more when he wrote Peter Simple. They came spontaneously, and in abundance. It is impossible not to believe that he must have enjoyed the writing of the book almost as much as three generations of men and boys have enjoyed the reading.
