When describing the Glacier du Bois seen for the first time, Wiliam Windham (1741) compared it to a lake suddenly bound by ice. In a similar function Horace-Bénédict de Saussure (1786) compared the glacier to a suddenly frozen sea. These descriptions gave rise to the name Mer de Glace, popularised from the early 19th century. In some respects an analogous phenomenon in poetry was the use of a metaphor in which a sudden arrest of an ascending motion of a being (flood waters, space rocket) constitutes a poetic image (Adam Mickiewicz, Julian Korsak, Wincenty Pol, Wisława Szymborska).
