There are some beautiful and poignant poems and songs based on the sinking of the Titanic. It paints grim pictures of women holding their children over their heads to keep them safe and the tells how their story ends. It brings to life, the horror of the thousands that died that night. The poems were written by both unknown and famous poets and songwriters. It is a sign of how much the tragedy touched people of all ages and classes. They would send these poems into the newspaper as a way to asuage their grief. It was a different time then, yet they took their pain to social media of the early nineteen hundreds, newspaper and print.
When you hear the survivor tales make you realize how terrible it was for husbands and wives to be separated and the decisions that were made by several couples not to be separated.
I listened to the audiobook and it was chilling to hear the words of the time, in song, poems, and newspaper articles. The narrator, Trevor Palczynski, really brought the stories to life. This is yet another compelling book involving the sinking of the Titanic by Ken Rosignol. Mr. Rossignol truly finds the best historical nonfiction stories to uncover and share. His investigative reporter skills are at their finest in this book.
