Description

John Masefield (1878'1967) was one of the most prolific, popular and successful poets of the twentieth century. Masefield broke upon Edwardian literature with the startling work entitled "The Everlasting Mercy," which described the spiritual enlightenment of a drunken poacher. Over the span of his lifetime, he was appointed Poet Laureate and amassed a large number of admirers, which included such high-profile names as John Betjeman, Robert Graves and W.B. Yeats. This collection contains 36 poems and spans Masefield's entire career. There are early poems from "Salt-Water Ballads" (1902) and "Ballads" (1903), followed by extracts from the narrative poems "The Everlasting Mercy," "Dauber" and "Reynard the Fox." The selection also includes a number of sonnets including "On Growing Old", as well as his poetry on the Romans, alongside a number of rarities.
