On April 14, 1912, RMS Titanic sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. The event has continued to haunt our imaginations ever since... The idea of the human drama of the disaster - the scramble for survival, acts of courage and cowardice, the terror of those who drowned and the guilt of the survivors - still works its emotional power today. TITANIC draws from a century's worth of extraordinary writing about the Great Ship - combining fiction, poems, letters, diaries, journalism and paraphernalia, and representing authors as diverse as Joseph Conrad, Walter Lord, Virginia Woolf and Herman Melville

"Titanic must be one of the most satisfying anthologies ever. What makes it a book to remember however, are the introductions and commentaries by Foster himself, the perfect companion for this voyage out". Frances Wilson, Blackwells Books of the Decade
