The poems in The Emma Press Anthology of the Sea ask how the human mind can fathom the ocean’s depths. Poets explore the environmental implications of our actions on the waters which nourish us, and embark on voyages of self-discovery.
‘The sea is powerful, raging, angry, delightful, destructive, calming… it is all these things at once and that is something which is explored in these poems. In a world where issues of climate change and ocean power are discussed as second nature, the skilful poets contained within this fascinating book give the sea its voice back. […] These poems explore the ways in which our relationship with the sea changes as we grow older and certainly provoke thought on the subject, long after the final poem has been read and the raging storm of the sea has calmed. Thoroughly recommended.’ – LiteratureWorks
