“Lost souls find their voices.” – Beck Chadfield
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 seems to unravel the myths that have emerged over the century since the tragedy.
From the pathos of poems in the voices of the 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.
“I love this book. Once I started reading Berth, I literally couldn’t put it down. Scott has given such fresh and unexpected voices to the individuals and objects who sailed aboard Titanic that, reading Berth, I felt as though I was discovering what had happened to them for the very first time. Absorbing her words has given me a completely new perspective on Titanic’s fateful voyage.” – Sarah Faulkner
