Hello! my name is Irek and I'm a new member here. I'm from Poland. I would like to ask you to help mi find some examples (the best known) of SHIP in English Literature. I need it cause I'm writing some kind of paper about the word SHIP. I hope a lot of us know them.
Best regards for all members from a new friend from Poland.

Welcome aboard from northern England, Irek.
I am sure someone in the crew will be able to help.
Find your way around the ship and enjoy the voyage.

From Michigan, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia, minekirek.
To start the ball rolling, perhaps the most famous would be the 'Pequod' (Moby Dick--Herman Melville) and Para Handy's 'Vital Spark' (Hugh Foulis, aka Neil Munro).

Thanks Bruce! I started "The Seafarer", Anonymous c. 450 – c. 1100 an oldest one and now I'm working with "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner", Samuel Taylor Coleridge, have you got any other ideas?
Minekirek, a very well known maritime author you may enjoy would be the Polish/English Joseph Conrad (Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski).
Many of his books may be found on the Project Gutenberg site:
There are other older maritime classics on the site, including Frederick Marryat's "Mr. Midshipman Easy".
