A story-teller's poems …

… Patrick O'Brian's unknown poems discovered in a drawer | Books | The Guardian. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)

Although O’Brian guarded his privacy – he was famously cool with reporters fishing for snippets of personal detail and many of his fans were upset when elements of his early personal life were revealed in a 1999 exposé – Smith said the poems were surprisingly autobiographical.
