Water in Literature

The water’s cultural history can be traced back to the creation myths of mankind, to the beginnings of the occidental philosophy as well as to the greatest epics of literary history. Water is considered as symbol of life as well as death, as liberation as well as threat, as source of wisdom and as symbol of the unconscious.

The different forms and facets of the water’s and the sea’s motives in literature are this course’s topics.
