Rate this:
This exciting collection of sea poems is like no other. It brings together two separate maritime nations and cultures - the United States and Britain - through the works of many different poets on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean telling the colorful and awe-inspiring history of seafaring. From the defeat of the Spanish Armada in the English Channel by Sir Francis Drake in the late 16th century, followed by the landing of the Pilgrim Fathers in America in the early 17th century to the Battle of Trafalgar and the defeat of Napoleon's fleet by Lord Nelson in the early 19th century this book has gripping stories to tell. No seafarer's or armchair sailor's education will be complete without this anthology, which brings together poetry from both sides of the Atlantic, including poets as diverse as Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Emily Dickinson and John Masefield.
