A Study on Interdisciplinary Theories Regarding Maritime Nautical Literature





Environment, Holistic, Sea, Social Hierarchies


Maritime or (Nautical literature) was ruling the period during the 18th century which was followed by 19th-century writers. These novels depict the effects on the environment, society and economy of the people. In this study, it is observed that the concept approach towards the Interdisciplinary theory with connection to the people’s thoughts regarding the sea, their religious or holistic approaches, and the gender description given to describe the sea were correlated with some famous nautical novel with notable incidents or theories to prove that the attributes of plots might be different but the themes relating to such sea novels/aquatic novels are more or less similar to each other and they serve some standard settings and motifs on the whole. The study reveals that maritime novels where written in distinctive plots but the themes are more or less focused on masculinity (gender roles) and heroism, social hierarchies and the psychological and holistic transformation during their hard existence in the sea. Ethical approach, the symbolism of sea and the gender roles are used in this regard of research dealing with interdisciplinary theory.
