An Emotional War Poem

Would you listen to England to the Sea again? Why?

Yes, I think it requires further listens to fully absorb, as this poem has a unique structure.

What was one of the most memorable moments of England to the Sea?

The reference to former sea commanders of the British Empire such as Drake and Nelson. It gives you a feeling for the historical legacy of England and Britain.

What does Phillip J. Mather bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His voice booms like a wave crashing on the side of a galley. It fits perfectly.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It is a poem, so yes.
