The works of Shakespeare are full of salty metaphors that reveal a profound familiarity with the ocean and its creatures. Middlebury professor Daniel Brayton discusses the role of the sea in Renaissance literary culture in general and in Shakespeare’s plays in particular.

Daniel Brayton is the Julian W. Abernethy Professor of Literature and Director of the Environmental Studies Program at Middlebury College.
