These beautiful creatures of the oceans are women in their upper body, with a fish-like tail below. Seafarers have long encountered them, leading to encounters both tragic, romantic and fortuitous.

We have accompanied our own musings on mermaids with quotes from a wide variety of literary sources, both old and new.
