John Masefield Books, John Masefield poetry book The Old Front Line Authors: John Masefield
Publisher: Pen and Sword
Published Date: 2006-05-18
Categories: History
July 1st 1916 is a date that remains embedded in the British folk memory. It was the first day of the Battle of the Somme, the day on which British and Empire troops suffered nearly 60,000 casualties, a third of them fatal. In this evocative classic memoir John Masefield, the future Poet Laureate, describes the battleground over which the armies were to fight. He had spent months at the front and was familiar with the men, the trenches that they inhabited and the conditions that they endured. 'The Old Front Line' was written shortly after the battle, and this elegant account will still move the modern reader as well as providing a valuable guide for the many 21st century visitors to the battlefield. This edition has a powerful new Introduction by Martin Middlebrook.

John Edward Masefield, OM, (1878-1967) was an English poet, writer, and Poet Laureate from 1930 until his death. He is remembered as the author of the classic children's novels The Midnight Folk and The Box of Delights.

John Masefield Books, John Masefield poetry book Sea-fever Authors: John Masefield
Publisher: Carcanet Press
Published Date: 2005
Categories: Literary Criticism
"John Masefield (1878-1967) is one of the great storytellers of English poetry, a spinner of yarns and ballads of tall ships and exotic seas, of the deep-rooted life of the rural England in which he grew up, and of the great narratives of Troy and Arthurian legend. Some included here - 'Sea-Fever' and 'Cargoes' - are among the best-loved poems in English; others are little known; a few are hitherto uncollected rarities. All share Masefield's love of the lives of seafarers and those who work the land, and his ability to draw the reader into their stories." "This is a representative anthology of Masefield's poems, in chronological sequence spanning his long career."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

It is the richest of the sugar countries. Plantations cover all the lowland along its seven hundred miles of seaboard, then above the lowland is foothill, covered with forest, rising to the Sierras of the Three Kings, which make the country's frontier. The city of Santa Barbara lies at the angle of the coast in the bight of a bay. The old town covers the southern, the new town the northern, horn of the bay: in between are the docks and quays.

Published Date: 2020-02-12
Categories:
'Salt-water Ballads' is a collection of ballads by esteemed English poet John Masefield. Masefield, an orphan who attended Warwick School, went to work on the HMS Conway. During that time, Masefield learned much about sea lore. This collection showcases some of his experiences that he wrote extensively about in his journals, as he dealt with sunstroke, witnessed a norcturnal rainbow, and saw so many types of creatures such as porpoises and flying fish. The ballads are a delight to read, full of strong imagery about the natural world that he experienced first-hand.

Dorothy Parker Poem
Somebody's Song
 by Dorothy Parker

This is what I vow;
He shall have my heart to keep,
Sweetly will we stir and sleep,
All the years, as now.
Swift the measured sands may run;
Love like this is never done;
He and I are welded one:
This is what I vow.
