The Sea Is Back
Stella Tillyard argues that for a long time we forgot about the sea. 'Land was the thing', she writes, 'the sea just bordered it'. But that's beginning to change.
"For a long time we forgot about the sea", writes Stella Tillyard. "But it did not forget us. It was always there, like a jilted lover waiting to make a move. And now it is back".
She says the seemingly empty and tranquil space of the Mediterranean has been abruptly reanimated, not by nature, but by man.
