Thomas hardy the convergence of the twain.small

"The Convergence of the Twain," subtitled, "Lines on the loss of the Titanic," was written by English poet Thomas Hardy for the Titanic Disaster Fund. The Titanic, a luxurious ship believed to be unsinkable, infamously collided with an iceberg and sank on April 15, 1912, killing over 1,500 people. Hardy's poem is a chilling meditation on human vanity and powerlessness before the indifferent, destructive powers of nature.
