Poems of the Sea Summary

Poems of the Sea by Adam Nicolson

Poems of the Sea is an anthology of classic poetry that celebrates the sea; from the power of a stormy ocean to ships and sailors and beaches strewn with shells.

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, pocket-sized classics with ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition features an introduction by author Adam Nicolson.

For generations, poets have taken inspiration from ocean mists and rugged coastlines to conjure up adventures on the high seas and joyous days at the seaside. From Emily Dickinson's morning dog walks by the shore, to the river running through Sara Teasdale's sunny valley, and from Walt Whitman's fish-filled forests, to the silent ships passing in Paul Laurence Dunbar's dark ocean, there are poems here for every reader to enjoy.
