Mother Sea

Published in 1951, Rachel Carson’s The Sea Around Us remains essential reading. Although it describes the oceans from a marine biologist’s perspective, it's also renowned for its immersive prose, evoking the sea as a place of wonder and mystery. Visual artist Tania Kovats talks about the poetry of the oceans, a subject important to her practice and writing, with renowned poets Kathleen Jamie and J R Carpenter, whose debut collection is An Ocean of Static.

Part of our The Sea Around Us series of events.
