Summary/Abstract: The title of Elisabeth Filhol’s novel, Doggerland, a piece of the European continent submerged by a gigantic tsunami, becomes a pretext to reflect on the relationship between man and nature, on the condition of the planet and on the responsibility for the current climate crisis. The writer subtly combines a description of the condition of the Earth with the emotional state of the characters.
