In the British and Irish archipelago, whose borders and boundaries have been and are today in contested flux, coastlines are places of great imaginative tensions and significance. Coastal Works aims to bring a new understanding of border relations and coastal interactions within ‘The Isles’ through archipelagic criticism, literary geography, and studies of the sea and maritime culture. The varied chapters form linked case studies of authors and artists working in the field on the coastal edges of the Atlantic Archipelago. By examining the methods, attitudes, and allegiances that inform their fieldwork, each contributor draws striking insights into the connections between writers and artists and their geographical environments.

This volume brings together some of the best criticism to have emerged from the Atlantic Archipelagos Research Consortium so far.
