Description: Poets ever since Homer have felt the ancient pull of the sea and captured in their words its myriad fascinations. From Dante and Shakespeare and Milton to Dickinson and D. H. Lawrence, their poems have evoked the full range of mankind's nautical fears, dreams, and longings. The colorful legends of the sea -- pirates and mermaids, phantom ships and the sunken city of Atlantis -- have inspired as many imaginations as have the realities of lighthouses and shipwrecks, of icebergs and frothing foam and seaweed.

This marvelous collection includes classics both old and new, from "Davy Jones's Locker" to Masefield's "I must go down to the seas again." Here are Tennyson's seductive sea-fairies next to Poe's beloved Annabel Lee. Here is the darkly brooding "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" alongside the grandeur of Shakespeare's The Tempest. The ocean has inspired some of poetry's most profound musings as well, from Cavafy's "Ithaka" to Arnold's "Dover Beach" to Stevens' "The Idea of Order at Key West." In the wide variety of lyrics collected here -- sonnets and sea chanteys, ballads and hymns and prayers -- we feel the power of our planet's vast waters, as metaphor, mystery, and muse.
