The wine-dark sea

Bourke, N. A. (2011) The wine-dark sea. [A Creative/Applied Media collection]

Full text not available from this repository.


N.A. Bourke's story, 'The Wine-Dark Sea' is a piece worth waiting for a bit of time to immerse yourself in. Published in volume 3 of that great little Australian lit journal Kurungabaa, 'The Wine-Dark Sea' is an extract from her novel Dying in the First Person. Bourke's story about fishing and fathers and brothers resonated with me for my own work on the sea, for the tragedies and silences within families, for the old men down the pub talking about the weather. It's beautiful as a stand-alone piece of work.
