Few historical events have captured public imagination in the same way as the sinking of the Titanic and the ship's ill-fated voyage has been the subject of several books, films and documentaries over the years. Now you can walk along the decks, take an imaginary journey through the galleys and experience life on board the Titanic through the power of poetry. The poem, Titanic, centres around a conversation between SO Lightoller, the highest ranking surviving officer, and Millvina Dean, who was saved from the sinking ship as a two month old baby. Lightoller describes what it felt like to be on the Titanic just before, and immediately after, the ship hit the iceberg. The poem is written in a new format 'Triplicism' developed by the author, James Fitzpatrick, in which the main story or event is layered with contrasting concepts. The book also contains a thought-provoking selection of other beautifully crafted poems by the author, many with explanatory notes. This book will appeal to anyone who appreciates poetry in all its forms and for all those people for whom the fascination of the Titanic story continues.
