With the exception of the final thirty pages of so (W.S. Merwin notwithstanding), a rather musty and fusty compilation of oceanic poesy. It's not the sea of Mary Oliver but more so "yo ho ho and a bottle of rum." The Ancient Mariner, indeed.

Take out most of the 20th century crap posing as poetry and you'd have a five-star book.

Wonderful collection of poetry I read time and time again.

A collection of some of the finest poems of the sea. My two favorites are Sea-Fever by John Masefield and Old Ironsides by Oliver Wendell Holmes.
