This enor­mous ocean was like the whole of heaven, an in­ver­sion of earth and air, so that the Pa­cific seemed like outer space, an im­men­sity of empti­ness, dot­ted with mis­shapen is­lands that twin­kled like stars, ar­chi­pel­a­gos like star clus­ters, and wasn’t Poly­ne­sia a type of galaxy?’
