    In 1959, I was stunned by Nevil Shute's novel 'On The Beach.' His view of a post-nuclear world was very frightening in those Cold-War days. Just the other day, I found out that the title is derived from a Whitman poem. I wanted to read the entire poem, so I navigated to this site. I was pleased to find that Whitman (who is buried only a few miles from my home in New Jersey) had a much more optimistic twist to his vision of the beach. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
