The case of Bermuda, England’s second-oldest and most isolated Atlantic colony, shadows changing understanding of the ocean in the early modern English imagination. From the colony’s shipwreck founding in 1609 through its precarious existence throughout the century, the island colony indexes changing ideas of the relationship between the English and the sea.
