A wonderful collection of verse celebrating Britain's rich maritime history and life above and below the waves.

Sea shanties and siren songs sit alongside such classics as "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner˜, The Walrus and the Carpenter and verses from The Tempest.

Beautifully illustrated with scenes of haunted shipwrecks, tempestuous storms and idyllic days at sea, this collection includes poems from our best-loved writers, such as Alfred, Lord Tennyson, W.B Yeats, Herman Melville and Rudyard Kipling.
