Abstract

Dorothy Richardson is usually associated with the representation of London and rightly so. However discreet it may be, the sea can nonetheless be considered as a leitmotiv in Pilgrimage, both literally and metaphorically since the sea-imagery can be found in all the chapter-volumes set in London. This probably has something to do with Richardson’s conception of consciousness, which was developed in an intellectual context where the idea of the universe as waves was in full swing. Besides the sea-metaphor may also have been used by Richardson to help the reader become an active one in the "smooth" narrative waters of Pilgrimage.
