Haskell Springer (ed). The first literary history of the U.S. to explore exclusively the presence of the sea in Amer. writing. A multi-author work, it covers the periods & genres that make up our national lit. as it considers the ubiquity of nautical symbols, images, & figurative language in addition to expressions of the sea experience itself. While this book situates the lit. within Amer. history, particularly maritime history, a chapter on hymns, chanteys, & sea songs as well as an annotated portfolio of Amer. seascape art expand & enrich the literary & cultural contexts. Covers the Atlantic, the Pacific, & the Gulf of Mexico, & also moves inland to address the lit. of the Great Lakes. Reveals the importance of the sea in works by women, African Amer., & Native Amer. Biblio. Illus.
