While some of these poems are stuck in late Victorian diction, a few of them bust through their own constraints and glow with the vitality of experience at sea. For instance, "Destroyer Men," by Berton Braley, is a gritty and magnificent piece that, as a former US Navy sailor, speaks to my own experience. For anyone interested poems about the sea and Navy life, I imagine this book would be of interest. I am disappointed it is unavailable here.
