The Seafarer Overview

One of the Old English elegies appearing in the Exeter Book, “The Seafarer,” is a brief (approx. 124 lines) meditation on the discomforts of journeys through the world and the transience of the corporeal. It pivots into being a homily, exhorting its audience to fix its attentions and devotions upon the divine rather than the passing fancies of the world.
