For instance, John Cleves Symmes's Symzonia, a piece of American
travelliterature based on Symmes's hollow-earth theory of “concentric spheres,”
was published in 1820 to promote a hypothesis which argued that our planet was
hollow and open at the poles. And, like More's voyage south, Symzonia is also
concerned with the development of capitalism and materialism through imperial
expansion. Captain Adam Seaborn, the protagonist of Symmes's novel,
commands a seal ...

He attracted no takers, so the only expedition he ever mounted was a fictive one,
writing a novel called Symzonia: A Voyage of Discovery (1820 as by Captain
Adam Seaborn). Poe has narrowed the 6,000-mile opening posited by Symmes
to a tighter 500 miles, but he has retained the entirely white interior of Symzonia.
Harold Beaver has made the attractive suggestion that Poe derived the name “
Pym” for his hero by combining his own name with that Symmes! The Pellucidar ...

Symzonia, a Voyage of Discovery, by Captain Adam Seaborn. New York, 1820.
12mo, pp. 248. Nothing furnishes a stronger illustration of the superficial taste of
men, than the almost exclusive attention they have paid to the external surface of
the globe. The same willingness to be blinded by the outside appearance, which
obtains in the details of manners and character, has exerted a much more
pernicious effect on the general regard men have bestowed upon the earth they
inhabit.

His satirical novel, The Monikins, is best passed over in a decent silence. Cooper
continued for many years to write sea-stories and forest romances ; in The Crater
he tried the Robinson Crusoe story; and in The Ways of the Hour, his last novel,
published in 1850, he attempted a sensational tale with a purpose. The Sea
Lions, published in the preceding year, now derives some interest from the recent
revival of Antarctic exploration, and calls to mind that unusual work, Symzonia, or
