The first epilogue considers a resonant phrase, “the bright light of shipwreck,” from George Oppen’s 1967 poem, “Of Being Numerous.” The second dives down after The Bookfish, a seventeenth-century illustration of a North Sea codfish with a tiny book in its belly, published and perhaps caught near Cambridge. The final epilogue, “Seven Shipwrecked Ecological Truths,” suggests directions for future inquiry and scholarship.
