|Authors:||Letson, Douglas R.|

|Keywords:||English Language and Literature;English Language and Literature|
|Abstract:||<p>I intend to demonstrate a thematic continuity throughout a large section of Old English poetry, first by tracing the exile-seafaring motif in Genesis,Exodus, Andreas, Whale, the Seafarer, The Wanderer, and incidentally in Christ and Satan, Christ, Guthlac, and Juliana; I then propose to discuss the image of the sea as retributive agent; and finally, I will consider the sea as the path of the dead.</p>|
