Sea and coast

(p.133) 4 Sea and coast

Gillian Rudd

Manchester University Press

This chapter focuses on the sea and coast, which appears to defy expression. It notes that descriptions of the sea are usually lacking in the very texts one might expect to find them. It then determines that much of one's view of the sea depends both imaginatively and literally on having a coast from which to view it. It shows that the effects of the sea on writers who live close to it are not always beneficial and studies peoples' highly ambiguous relations with the sea.

Keywords:   sea, coast, expression, ambiguous relations
