The Titanic sank to the bottom of the Atlantic during a night of rare calm, but the tragedy caused shock waves on both sides of the ocean and has continued to haunt our imaginations ever since. The human drama of the disaster still has much of the power to excite and appall that it had in 1912, inspiring novels, films, plays, poems, and songs.<P>This anthology -- for the first time ever -- draws from more than eight decades of literature about the Titanic disaster. The Titanic Reader both relives the event, with accounts of survivors and witnesses, and shows how a variety of commentators sought meaning in the disaster -- and how the meaning changed over the years. There are contributions from major writers, including Joseph Conrad, H. G. Wells, Thomas Hardy, Emma Goldman, George Bernard Shaw, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, William F. Buckley, and Leadbelly. A unique and compellingly readable anthology, The Titanic Reader is the definitive book on the tragedy that had such a powerful impact on the twentieth century.
