Sea-mark: The Metaphorical Voyage, Spenser to Milton
Liverpool University Press, 1997 M01 1 - 227 pages
This study explores the many different functions of the voyage metaphor in the work of major writers of the 16th and 17th century - Spenser, Marlowe, Shakespeare, Donne, Bacon and Milton in particular. Concentrating on the way voyage metaphors work, this book offers some radical reinterpretations of well-known texts, such as Shakespeare's Othello, and Bacon's essay on Adversity.
