Introduction

Unlock the more straightforward side of The Sea with this concise and insightful summary and analysis!

This engaging summary presents an analysis of The Sea by John Banville, a contemplative novel which is narrated by the recently widowed Max Morden. His overwhelming grief has led him to withdraw from his everyday life and return to the seaside town where he used to spend his summers as a child. Max’s thoughts flit constantly between the past and the present, but while his recent memories of his late wife’s battle with cancer bring him only pain, he seeks solace in more distant memories of the summer romance that once unfolded in the very house he has returned to. The Sea is John Banville’s 13th novel, and won the 2005 Man Booker Prize. Banville also wrote the screenplay for the film adaptation of the novel, which was released in 2014, and has published a number of other books both as himself and under the pseudonym Benjamin Black.
