Robert Arthur’s Eastern Shore

robert arthur's eastern shore poetry book

The book includes four one-act plays,  a selection of his award-winning poems, and “Hymn to the Chesapeake,” a poem/play with music.

The culture of the Eastern Shore watermen and waterwomen has long been threatened by erosion and the high winds of the Chesapeake Bay, as well as by a dwindling supply of crabs and “ersters” to be harvested.  

These poems and plays celebrate life and love and allow us to share the triumph and the pain of finding one’s livelihood and reason for being in an environment that is both beautiful and unforgiving.

Available via Blue Moon Plays $14.95
