This marvelous collection includes classics old and new, from Homer and Milton to Plath and Merwin. Here are Tennysonâs seductive sea-fairies next to Poeâs beloved Annabel Lee. Here is Coleridgeâs darkly brooding âThe Rime of the Ancient Marinerâ alongside the grandeur of Shakespeareâs âFull Fathom Five.â And here is Masefieldâs âI must go down to the seas againâ alongside Cavafyâs âIthakaâ and Stevensâs âThe Idea of Order at Key West.â In the wide variety of lyrics collected hereâsonnets and sea chanteys, ballads and hymns and prayersâwe feel the encompassing power of our planetâs restless waters as metaphor, mystery, and muse.
