Captain Frederick Marryat (July 10, 1792 – August 9, 1848) was an English novelist, a contemporary and acquaintance of Charles Dickens, noted today as an early pioneer of the sea story. He is now known particularly for the semi-autobiographical novel Mr Midshipman Easy and his children's novel The Children of the New Forest.
This is probably the most polished of Marryat's books about the lives of young naval officers in the early nineteenth century. As in all of his books riotously amusing incidents follow one another without pause.
