Poem: Marina

Living To Live In A World Of Time Beyond Me

Marina is by T.S. Eliot. It was first published in 1930 as part of a series called the Ariel Poems. They were composed by a selection of English writers and poets between 1927 and 1931, and are based on the play: Pericles, Prince of Tyre, which involves a father's separation and eventual reunion with his daughter, Marina. Most scholars consider the second half of the play to be by Shakespeare. Marina is included in the Religious Poetry Appendix for Lent and Easter of the Divine Office (1974).
