Course Description

Whilst the sea resonates in literatures from around the world, it acquired particular centrality with the voyages of discovery in the late fifteenth- and early sixteenth-centuries. Vital to burgeoning trade links, colonial conquest, and cross-cultural exchange, the sea also represented a stark encounter with a radically non-human environment that compelled profound religious and metaphysical debate, and this course will consider the different meanings assigned to salt-water in texts as diverse as The Tempest, Robinson Crusoe, Moby-Dick, and Lord Jim.
