The Rings of Saturn : (Vintage Voyages), Paperback / softback Book

The Rings of Saturn : (Vintage Voyages) Paperback / softback

Part of the Vintage Voyages series

Paperback / softback

Description

Encountering an eccentric cast of characters along the way, Sebald confronts the frailty of human existence as he voyages along the Suffolk coast on foot. What begins as the record of a journey on foot through coastal East Anglia becomes the great, constellated story of people and cultures past and present: of Chateaubriand, Thomas Browne, Swinburne and Conrad, of fishing fleets, skulls and silkworms.

A rich meditation on the past via a melancholy trip along the Suffolk coast, The Rings of Saturn is an intricately patterned and haunting book on the transience of all things human. VINTAGE VOYAGES: A world of journeys, from the tallest mountains to the depths of the mind
