This book explores the unprecedented surge or oceanic feeling in the aesthetic expression of the romantic century. As secular thought began to displace the certainties of a sacral universe, the oceans that give life to our planet offered a symbol of eternity, rooted in the experience of nature rather than Biblical tradition. Images of the sea permeated the minds of the early Romantics, became a significant ingredient of romantic expression, and continued to emerge in the language, literature, art, and music of the nineteenth century. These pages document the evidence for this oceanic consciousness in some of the most creative minds of that century.

About the Author:

The Author: Howard Isham, Professor Emeritus at San Francisco State University, taught in the interdisciplinary Department of Humanties for twenty-five years. He was a music major at Pomona College until his senior year was interrupted by World War II, during which he served at sea in the U.S. Naval Reserve. His graduate degrees include an M.A. in Musicology from Columbia University, an M.F.A. in Music History from Princeton University, and a Ph.D. in European History from Columbia University.

Review:

«Every Romantic or nineteenth-century collection should include this unusual study. Dr. Isham’s unprecedented constellation of skills makes ‘Image of the Sea’ not only the first, but probably the final word on its important subject. Scholars in art, music, literature, philosophy and nineteenth century culture will be grateful to Dr. Isham for conquering this enormous subject.» (George J. Leonard, author ‘Into the Light of Things: The Art of the Commonplace from Wordsworth to John Cage’)
