From Cnut to D-Day: the history and science of the unceasing tide explored for the first time. Half of the world's population lives in coastal regions lapped by tidal waters. Yet how little most of us know about the tide. Our ability to predict and understand the tide depends on centuries of science, from the observations of Aristotle and the theories of Newton to today's supercomputer calculations. This story is punctuated here by notable tidal episodes in history, from Caesar's thwarted invasion of Britain to the catastrophic flooding of Venice, and interwoven with a rich folklore that continues to inspire art and literature today. With Aldersey-Williams as our guide to the most feared and celebrated tidal features on the planet, from the original maelstrøm in Scandinavia to the world's highest tides in Nova Scotia to the crumbling coast of East Anglia, the importance of the tide, and the way it has shaped - and will continue to shape - our civilization, becomes startlingly clear.

My coming novel will be the story behind my poetry that will tie in with my work and back up my poetic considerations with classic prose. I have watched as each poem was worded in a manner of beautiful description to the words I love to hear and was composed to the narrative and to the image of wonder and enchantment in the dress sense of beautiful fable lines and imagination. Our whole world is reflective of the dark side, and the moonlight contrasts to the day's end and the going down of the sun. Lucent travels are enlightened journeys, whether in darkness or by the light of the rising sunlit dawn and morning wake. And the dreams conscious of binding and reflective thought carry on in our daily lives through the passages that are arrived at and for the light that they are seen. Stars are held in awe of distance and time and are watched as they navigate the universe for which they are known in the space that they have always been seen to highlight and mark our travels in the light and depth of our destinations that only our imagination can concur to the challenge of understanding and distinction. We awake from sleep to the clarity of light, and hopefully, the guarded truth that follows our turbulent lives in hindsight to the character bestowed in our darkest thoughts and the things that bring them to light that may raise us from the pit of demons that carry chains to hold us hostage to their disparaging afterlife, that is fired by hatred, jealousy, and envy of the time that we have left and for their own fateful eternities for which there is no return, but for the devil that drives the enormities of fact for our own judgment.
