Songs & Poems of the Whalefishery Presented at Wilson Museum

Castine -

CASTINE, Maine — “What Shall We Do with the Drunken Whaler?” a presentation by Dr. Stephen Sanfilippo, based primarily upon songs and poems found in whalemen’s journals of the 1840s, will show both the “jolly” side of drinking as well as the somber sober side  at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 16, at the Museum. This presentation, which is intended for adults and teenagers, addresses a very serious subject. Listeners will gain insight into the conflicting attitudes of manhood found among whalemen, and the important place of alcohol within that conflict. For more information, call 326-9247.
