The Open Sea (Masters)

The Open Sea – tomik wierszy amerykańskiego poety Edgara Lee Mastersa[1], opublikowany w 1921 nakładem nowojorskiego wydawnictwa The Macmillan Company. Zawiera między innymi poemat Brutus and Antony, napisany wierszem białym (blank verse)[2].

How shall I write this out? I do not write.
Talk to you? Yes, and tell of Antony,
And how I knew him. There at Philippi
I let myself be captured, so to give
Time to escape to Brutus — made pretense
That I was Brutus, and so Brutus flies
And I am captured. Antony forgives me.
And to his death I was his faithful friend.
Well, after Actium, in Africa,
He roamed with no companions but us two.
Our friend Aristocrates, here, myself,
And fed upon his bitter heart. Our guest
Nods truth to what I say, he knows it all.
