Ship of the Line is a museum in which objects whisper inviting stories: the bed a king may not have slept in, a school of taxidermy animals, a peal of wedding bells. Sailors are shipwrecked and dredged up on the coast, while the poet journeys across England, sometimes walking through fields or bicycling over country hills, and at others times journeying through documents, meeting vivid characters that peek out of the footnotes. This book is a grand exhibition, gathering oddments from history, and floodlighting them for all to see.

Review:

In this wide-ranging, generous and engaging collection Penny Boxall brings the past vividly and urgently back to life. She takes us on a wonderfully surprising journey from a taxidermist's, via the Grand Tour, the Pitt Rivers museum, ice hockey, the Age of Steam, a penny-farthing, a balloon flight, to end up with a deafening beetle buried for years in her grandfather's ear. --Michael Laskey
