John Masefield (1878–1967) was one of the most prolific, popular and successful poets of the twentieth century. Masefield 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 WB Yeats.

Review By Rachel Redford,The Oldie,September 2013

Masefield’s work spanned more than sixty years. His skills—rhythms and rhymes, ballads, dramatic narratives, sonnets—and his interests, including Ancient Rome, the sea, nature and country ways…are undeniable. His lines on ageing find an echo: ‘my dog and I too old for roving’ and his plea ‘may love’s gold coin be current with us yet.’ Ronald Pickup matches all the poet’s moods. © 2013 The Oldie
