Latest from World Ocean Radio: Conrad and the Sea

Many of literature's great classics are set on the ocean where Nature's beauty and force are bound to the human experience. In this episode of World Ocean Radio host Peter Neill will suggest that the greatest author of such sea-based literature was Joseph Conrad and will share some observations from one of Conrad's most well-known books on the ocean, "The Mirror of the Sea."

Listen to the episode here and you can listen to previous episodes here. World Ocean Radio, a project of the W2O, is a weekly series of five-minute audio essays. Peter Neill, Director of the World Ocean Observatory (W2O) and host of World Ocean Radio, provides coverage of a broad spectrum of ocean issues from science and education to advocacy and exemplary projects.
