Cook is commander, father, old man,
whose life and role and name all
identify and characterize this expedition
officially. Then as now, Cook belongs
to his public image, to portraits
and engravings, to newspapers
and history books, to postcards
and postage stamps. Even his death
will be a festivity, his flesh
eaten by those he most impressed.
