It has often been stated that sea poetry, that is to say literature in which the sea and sea faring find poetic expression, first makes its entry into German literature in the year 1826. The prominent position of the sea and of ships in nineteenth century poetry requires no proof. There is not yet in existence, however, a comprehensive study of the part played by the sea in the corpus of German literature as a whole. The present dissertation represents an attempt to marshal and characterise the materials for such a work.
