Humans and the Sea Subject Library

This section takes a decidedly philosophical cast. It serves one purpose: to illuminate your relationship with the sea. We will look at a few of the artists, poets and writers who have gained inspiration from the sea. These works of art bring us to the sea from a different perspective and provide some feeling for the breadth of human intellect and emotion tied to the sea. And we will splash a few salty tales on the silver screen, examining a few of the ways in which Hollywood and television have portrayed the sea. But even these heady musings will not deter us from taking a hard look at human exploitation of the sea. From overfishing to habitat destruction to global warming, we'll discuss the perils and promises of human interaction with the sea.
