“The Greenland Disaster (III -- Miscellaneous)”

Author: various, some unknown
Earliest date: 1898 (variiuus poems in the Harbour Grace Standard)
Keywords: storm disaster death hunting


Catchall entry, for all poems about the Greenland Tragedy not covered by the other pieces on the subject. The Greenland goes to the ice, and 48 men are frozen or lost as a heavy storm traps them away from the ship


The poems cited here are not one piece, but I've lumped them because there are so many of them, none traditional. These pieces are to be strongly distinguished from The Greenland Disaster (I) and (II), which *are* traditional. - RBW
