a sea changed looks at the many facets of mankind’s relationship with nature. From simple enjoyment of the beauty of the world around us to the mortal threat posed by the ocean; from the sea as a metaphor for our innermost feelings to the continuity of nature in the face of human folly and destruction, the interaction of women and men with their environment is explored from different angles. William Shakespeare’s words in The Tempest lend themselves to reinterpretation in the context of climate change: “The powers, delaying, not forgetting, have / Incens'd the seas and shores, yea, all the creatures, / Against your peace.”
