Synopsis

Published in association with the National Maritime Museum, this anthology celebrates the sea as an elemental force with deep resonances for people everywhere. As such, it has always had a place of honour in poetry. Poets from time immemorial have written of sea adventures, voyages, explorations, battles, drownings, storms, shipwrecks, fishing and trade, to name just some of the human interactions with the sea which have been described, praised or lamented in poetry. "The Sea! The Sea!" entertainingly blends poems ancient and modern, well-known and familiar, solemn and light-hearted. As well as English-language poets from the anonymous author of "The Seafarer" to the present, the book includes a light seasoning of Spanish and French poems to commemorate their countrymen's part in the 1805 Battle of Trafalgar, whose anniversary this book commemorates.
