Overview

Since the dawn of language, poets have celebrated the majestic immensity of Earth's oceans, the powerful waters that create and destroy, the intense drama and soothing gentleness of waves, the dangerous voyages to distant shores, and the indelible sensory memories set on shifting sandy beaches drenched in sunshine. This collection joins the verse of renowned poets with the voices of select modern writers, all inspired by the ceaseless splendor of the sea. Includes a reading guide for teachers and book groups, and biographies of the poets inside.

Author Information

Gene Hult is the publisher of Houston, TX-based Brighten Press, and edited this anthology. After being the managing editor of the Denver Quarterly, he worked in children's editorial in NYC for nearly 30 years. Gene has written more than 120 books published for children and young adults, mostly under his pseudonym J. E. Bright (jebright.com). His first book of poetry was entitled Render, and his second, Catfish and After, is forthcoming in 2019. Please visit genehult.com, or follow Gene on Twitter and Instagram @citysqwirl. William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was an Irish poet and one of the great writers of the 20th century. A pillar of the Irish literary establishment, he helped to found the Abbey Theatre, and in his later years served two terms as a Senator of the Irish Free State. Often considered a Symbolist, he was preoccupied with metaphysics, the occult, physical and spiritual masks, mythology (especially Irish legends) as well as with cyclical theories of life, although he retained his formalism. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. His poetry collections include The Wild Swans at Coole, The Tower, and The Winding Stair and Other Poems. Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was American lyric poet who lived mostly in isolation with her family in Amherst, MA, and commanded an original brilliance of style and integrity of vision. Her poetry was not publicly recognized in her lifetime, but she is now considered to be one of the most important and influential 19th-century American poets and a central figure in Western literature
