The kraken is a giant legendary sea monster that inhabited the northern Atlantic Ocean. “Kraken” is a variant of the Norwegian word “krake”, which describes an unhealthy or twisted animal. The kraken features prominently in nautical lore, and has featured prominently in popular works of fiction, such as Lord Tennyson’s sonnet “The Kraken”, Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick”, and Jules Vern’s “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”
