About this product
- DescriptionThe idea of the North in modernity--its associations with sparseness and scarcity, to hardships and remoteness--has fed countless narratives of journeying to places and fates unkwn. In classical antiquity, however, the rth was a place of perfection. In the 5th century BCE, Pindar wrote of the wonders of Hyperborea--a rtherly land whose natives lived unaffected by sickness or ruius old age, by toil or battles. The poet also claimed this kingdom could be found neither by ship r on foot, and it is this mix of terrestrial encounter and lyric indeterminacy that continues to characterize our idea of the North. Cabinet 59, with a special section on The North, includes Jessica Rowan on five centuries of expeditions in search of the Northwest Passage; Joe Duncan on the US government's rush to exploit Arctic resources made newly accessible by global warming; and Bettina Sierra on the attempts to recreate the atmospheric effects of the aurora borealis.
