"How can such an object retain such a powerful hold on our collective memory? It is, after all, nothing more or less than what it is, 12 rectangular panels of cork, 6 on the front and 6 on the back, sewn into pockets of rough canvas.
It reminds us, however, of one of those signal tragedies in human history, that dramatically demonstrate the perils of what the ancient Greek call hubris." (In regards to the color image of the Blackmarr lifevest featured therin)

End excerpt.

It is a very well written contribution. You may access the article via your EBSCO periodical search. However, also featured is a deck scene photograph of TITANIC survivors taken aboard CARPATHIA...one that I have never seen. It is not available via EBSCO.

Enjoy!
