As in the other episodes of Under the Sea-Wind, a sense of sympathy is elicited
for the hunted creatures of the sea, and readers are happy when Scomber
ultimately survives, later in Book 2, after some dogfish with sharp teeth cut holes
in the fishing net in which he is trapped. In the third part of Under the Sea-Wind,
the ocean world is seen from the perspective of Anguilla the eel, who leaves the
inland pond where she has spent ten years of her life. She travels two hundred
miles back ...

In 1941, the same year Steinbeck and Ricketts published Sea of Cortez, a marine
biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, thirty-four- year-old Rachel
Carson, published her first book, Under the Sea Wind. In this chapter, I had
planned to discuss only Under the Sea Wind because it so closely relates in time
and subject to Sea of Cortez — so closely, in fact, that Under the Sea Wind and
Sea of Cortez were reviewed together in the Saturday Review of Literature in
December ...

ary layer at the sea's surface, are clumsy at best when they face the oceans'
winds and waves. In her marine ecology trilogy, Carson attempts to descend
through the barrier at the sea's edge and surface, gently pulling her reader along,
like a mermaid guiding a bewildered sailor into the magical kingdoms below.
Even the titles suggest an inversion of habitats and relationships, and penetration
across boundaries. Her first book, Under the Sea-Wind: A Naturalist's Picture of
Ocean Life, ...

Matter is to feed life." Jeffries's idea of the sea as both the real and spiritual
source of life touched something essential in Carson's spirit. In later years, she
always kept a copy of his poetry by her bedside to read from just before she
turned out the light. The title for Under the Sea-Wind comes from one of her
favorite passages in The Pageant of Summer: "As the wind, wandering over the
sea, takes from each wave an invisible portion, and brings to those on shore the
ethereal essence of ...

SINCE ANCIENT TIMES, MARINERS HAVE TOLD STORIES OF FABU-lous sea
creatures and ferocious monsters that lurked beneath the waves. Yet, few
humans ever knew what manner of life the oceans might contain. Then, in
November 1941, a remarkable book appeared—Under the Sea-Wind by Rachel
Carson. One veteran voyager confessed to Carson that after a lifetime of travel on
the seas he had been so much “impressed by [their] apparent lifeless aspect—'
not a snout nor ...

have thoroughly enjoyed every word of the volume. ... Miss Carson's science
cannot be questioned.” The Scientific Book Club chose Under the Sea Wind as
an annual selection, and in its review wrote, “There is poetry here, but no false
sentimentality. ...There is ruthlessness as well as beauty in nature, as depicted
here by a zoologist of experience.”27 As this last commentary suggests, Under
