Sea-Fever: Selected Poems

John Masefield

Carcanet Collection  

'Sea-Fever' remains one of the most popular poems of the last century, and John Masefield one of the most popular poets, a superb spinner of yarns and ballads of tall ships, exotic seas, of the deep-rooted life of rural England, and of the great narratives of Troy and Arthurian legend. This book includes his most popular poems and a few previously uncollected rarities. All share Masefield's love of particular lives: he draws the reader into his stories with an incomparable music of language.

This is a representative selection of the poems, in chronological sequence spanning his long career. The editor also provides a full introduction to his work.
