Voices of the Titanic by Natalie Scott
Natalie Scott's debut collection of poetry, BERTH, brings together myriad diverse voices, tapping into the psyche of those affected by the sinking of the Titanic.
Ambitious in its scope, Berth seeks to unravel the myths that have emerged over the century since the tragedy.
From the pathos of poems in voices of passengers who died, to the amusing reflections of the iceberg, dog,and anchor, this collection commemorates those who were lost and celebrates those who survived that fateful night of 14 April 1912.
Titanic Heritage Trust is producing a CD of selected voices from Berthfor the centenary;Vivid Theatre Company will be staging a series of live performances of Berth during the 100th Anniversary year.
'a deft poetic imagination' ~ Anna Woodford, poet
'If the passengers, crew and others depicted in this book were interviewed today, their testimonies would not I think be too far away from the words that Natalie has written on their behalf'
Howard Nelson, founder of Titanic Heritage Trust.
