A World of Turtles

We have always loved turtles, and we have often suspected them of loving us. A World of Turtles, which gathers literary sightings of turtles over many times and many cultures, celebrates the long-standing place of these creatures in the human imagination.

All through our history we have attributed greatly anthropomorphic values to turtles as this anthology will confirm. Wise, droll, bright, wary, dependable, serious, and shrewd come to mind, but also, somehow, noble, steadfast, loving. Turtles are constant symbols of strength, patience, endurance, and long life. Yet, for us, from childhood through adulthood, they are perpetual sources of delight as well.
