Caroline Bergvall's Drift retraces the language and maritime imagination of early medieval North Atlantic travels from the sagas to quest poems to today's sea migrancies.
Its centerpiece is the song cycle, "Drift," which takes the anonymous 10th century Anglo-Saxon quest poem The Seafarer as its inspiration.
Both ancient and contemporary tales of travel and exile shadow the plight and losses of wanderers across the waters in this haunting new book.
Drift is the second of Bergvall's explorations of historical English language.
