The Oceanides, Edited by Judith Pascoe

Spirit of the Cape: The Cape of Good Hope, located at the junction of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans on the southern tip of Africa. The Cape of Good Hope was a stop on Jewsbury's trip from England to India by a route that also included stops in the Madeira Islands off the coast of Spain.

The editor of The Athenaeum provides the following note: "The Cape of Good Hope was so named by King John of Portugal; the discoverer, Bartholomew Diaz, gave it the more emphatic, and to this day the more deserved title, of the Cape of Tempests."
