Going By Sea - Poems and Thoughts for Today's World




In Stock


Inspired by his love of sailing, the poems and reflections in Going By Sea: Poems and Thoughts for Today’s World arise from various maritime events Piero Rivolta experienced during his voyages in the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico and the Mediterranean. Whether he is watching an approaching storm, enjoying a colorful coastline or swaying peacefully at anchor, Rivolta's contemplation of his surroundings gives rise to musings and questions about life, existence and mortality. Heartfelt and romantic, they touch our deepest longings and hopes in times of uncertainty and change.
