The Rings of Saturn is a novel by W.G. Sebald, first published in English in 1998 to wide critical acclaim. It tells the story of an unnamed narrator, a German who visits England during the early 1990s and sees England as "a country that has lost its way".This book is about memories and dreams which can be seen everywhere around us over time but we never notice them until they are gone. The narrator visits various places along the M25 motorway as he travels through England with his English friend, George Hatemeyer. His journey takes him from London to Norwich via Birmingham and Bristol. He looks at memory through nostalgia and traces its implications for society's future.
