Sea-fever: selected poems
FyfieldBooks/Carcanet, Apr 1, 2005 - Literary Criticism - 259 pages
Tales of tall ships in exotic seas and of Arthurian England compete for attention with rural English ballads and mythological narratives in this collection of poetry from one of England's great storytellers. Some of John Masefield’s best known poems are included, such as "Sea-Fever," and "Cargoes," along with previously uncollected rarities. Many of the poems reveal Masefield's fascination with the lives of seafarers and lowly farm workers and contribute to a charming and quixotic image of English history.
