Rachel Carson’s seminal ‘Sea’ trilogy – "Under the Sea-Wind" (1941), "The Sea Around Us" (1951), and "The Edge of the Sea" (1955) – has been reissued by Canongate in the publisher’s modern classics series, ‘The Canons’. The beautifully-produced paperbacks – each a celebration of the sea told through poetic nature writing – include a full set of integrated illustrations and a pertinent new introduction by Margaret Atwood.
"When I read, I am home. Same feeling, when I arrive at an empty beach, throw my bike in the sand and am there. With the sea."
Virginia Woolf, Anton Chekhov, Rachel Carson, Herman Melville, Iris Murdoch, Oscar Wilde, Mary Oliver, Tim Winton, Albert Camus, Chloe Aridjis and other writers about the sea.
