This book contains expository lectures from the CBMS Regional Conference held at the University of Florida, 1982.

The author considers a space formed by all closed curves in which the closed geodesics are characterized as the critical points of a functional, an idea going back to Morse. This exposition gives a refined version of Morse's approach which has several advantages over the old one---in particular, it possesses a canonical $\mathbf O(2)$-action.
