Críticas:

'One of the great story-tellers of English poetry was John Masefield. With consummate ease, he weaves yarns spun from the deep-roooted likfe of the rural England in which he grew up...yet, in the wink of an eye, can also draw from the classical well of Arthurian legend. Then there are the great narratives of Troy and the romances of the ancient world that so fascinate him. John Masefield was born in Ledbury, Herefordshire, in 1878, going to sea while still a teenager in order to complete his education. Taken ill en route to South America, he was classified as a Distressed British Sailor upon his arrival in Chile. It was there that he decided to become a writer "come what might". After a period of homeless vagrancy, bar and factory work, Masefield returned to England in 1897. His frienship with WB Yeats provided the vital spark of encouragement that would launch the young traveller into the literary world and eternal fame. This wide-ranging selection of his works, edited with an introduction by Philip W Errington, is only partly made up of ballads of tall ships and exotic seas, for there is also a considerable pastoral section that pays lyrical homage to his beloved Herefordshire countryside. But it is the salt spray that gives savour to these pages, as this late-Victorian poet views the world through the prisms of the British Empire. His was a world that still reverberated to the roar of broadsides, where gold doubloons glistened in the sunshine of the Spanish main...of tarry pirates, mainsails and poop decks, crows' nests and pivot guns. Masefield was obviously overwhelmed by the thought that he was sailing the same waters as Sir Francis Drake, "El Draco", scourge of the devilish Dons. This is a fine collection that completely evokes the spirit of one of Britain's best-loved poets. ' John Phillpott, Worcester Evening News.

Reseña del editor:

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 particular 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. The editor provides a full introduction to Masefield's work.
