This article focuses on the book "The Land of Silence," May Sarton. The poems are portraits of characters at an English seaside resort in the Victorian period. Yet the sophisticated satire, which is its principal characteristic, has universality. The poet explains in his preface that the general title of his work, England Reclaimed, refers only to the sense of reclaiming the ground of England from obliteration by time. The specific poems in this second volume he calls "Balnearics," because they concern people who belong to a health resort.
