APPLES BY OCEAN by Robert P. Tristram Coffin


Email this review


The current poet laureate of the State of Maine, Robert P. Tristram Coffin, here repeats his more than twice-told tales of the Pine Tree State. His eulogies of this way of life know no end and he never tires in his praise of its shipbuilders, fishermen and farmers, of its landscape and seascape, of its flora and fauna. The verses are fluent and facile, with a pleasant sense of intimacy but without any of the hard wrought quality of Robert Frost. And in spite of the sentimentality, these verses do convey the particular charm of this part of the country. No poet's book- but Coffin does have a following which is an established one.
