John Masefield was one of the most prolific, popular, and successful poets of the twentieth century. He 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 thirty-six poems and spans Masefield’s entire career. There are early poems from Salt-Water Ballads and Ballads, followed by extracts from the narrative poems The Everlasting Mercy, Dauber, and Reynard the Fox. The selection also contains a number of sonnets, including “On Growing Old,” as well as his poetry on the Romans, alongside a number of rarities.
