Off The Book Shelf/ Poets We Should Know


Pdlyons's Explorations

IMG_1262So the other day I picked this little gem off the shelf and discovered Robert Louis Stevenson – the poet. I have had this book for a while now maybe 10 – 15 years bought it some where in America for .25 cents. It has only two poems by RLS; Requiem and The Vagabond. I think they both show just how ballsy a poet he was. Today as I was putting this blog together Shelly  posted on my face Book page about Tom Crean the Irish Sailor & Antarctic explorer. The inscription on Toms grave – Home is the sailor, home from sea. You can still drink at Toms Crean’s Pub ( he opened a pub once he retired from the sea) The last time I was there they pulled a very fine pint.

    That’s a nice discovery, Peter, especially if one readily considers RLS as a realistic fiction-writer. Too bad, he had the reputation as “…writing for youngsters.” Thanks for the exchange. e/s
