The motifs of island and shipwreck have been present in literature and the arts from ancient times. Whether they occur as plot elements, as part of literary or film imagery, as symbols in paintings, as leitmotifs in songs, or as concepts in philosophical theories, both have always been a source of fascination to authors, artists and scholars.
In Shipwreck and Island Motifs in Literature and the Arts, Brigitte Le Juez and Olga Springer have gathered essays that explore shipwreck and island figures in texts as historically, culturally and artistically diverse as Walter Scott's The Lord of the Isles, Cristina Fernández Cubas' "The Lighthouse," reality TV series Treasure Island, pop songs of the BBC Radio programme Desert Island Discs, or The Otolith Group's essay-film Hydra Decapita.
