3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A discerning and entertaining anthology for all those fascinated by the sea, marking the 200th anniversary of the legendary Battle of Trafalgar and Admiral Lord Nelson's death. The sea occupies four-fifths of the earth's surface and, from time immemorial, poets have turned and returned to the sea as a powerful theme or symbol. Blending well-known and unfamiliar, ancient and modern poetry, the anthology celebrates the sea's elemental, practical, and mythological significance to humankind
The Song of Songs by Peter Jay( Book )

5 editions published between 1973 and 1998 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The extraordinary and long-lived appeal of The Song of Songs lies in its unmatched lyrical beauty and in its supreme evocation of the moods of sexual love. Perhaps the most famous and popular book of the Bible, it is usually - and yet mistakenly - thought of as a single long narrative poem. Scholars have proposed many theories of the book's structure, but none is more natural than the view that it is a small anthology of quite distinct and varied lyric poems, composed over several centuries of Hebrew history." "The poems are set in context by the late Rabbi Dr David Goldstein's revealing introduction, and enhanced with a useful set of notes."--Jacket
