Favourite Poems of the Sea
Poems to Celebrate Britain's Maritime Heritage
Publication date: 16 April 2015
Series: National Trust History & Heritage
A wonderful anthology of poetry celebrating the British coastline and life above and below the deep blue sea. Verses from our best-loved authors – such as WB Yeats, RL Stevenson and Rudyard Kipling – are accompanied by beautiful illustrations of idyllic days at sea, haunted shipwrecks and tempestuous storms. Sea shanties and siren’s songs sit alongside the classic song from The Tempest and Coleridge’s ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’ in this beautiful anthology of the mystical world beneath the waves.
