ABSTRACT
The article offers poetry criticism of the poem "Cargoes," by John Masefield. It examines the use of imagery in the poem, presenting several excerpts, and addresses Masefield's use of descriptive writing in presenting what seems to be a romanticized view of history in the work. The author then suggests that the third stanza differs from the first two in that it is filled with negative words and connotations concerning the travels of British ships. The theme of nostalgia is also discussed.
