In this book the author explores literary works that evoke futures in terms of openness and promise. The Introduction also introduces some of some of the broad aims of the book, such as to explore stories about hope that are entangled in a the environmental life of the ocean and that has never been theorized in a direct sustained way in ecocriticism. The author also expands upon the controversial nature of hope, and how hope and the idea of utopia function in this book.
