About the author


My name is RW Gates; it is my sincerest wish that World Codex will entertain, enlighten, and create intrigue for all those who are willing to challenge the parameters of everyday reality. Included within this series of books will be several previously unpublished works explicitly placed to be world-altering by their nature and design. Between the Codex pages are many accounts of events that have never before been brought to light or explored by the reading world as a whole. The World Codex staff has worked diligently to illustrate the impetus and inspiration for its development, as well as to captivate the imagination of each and every reader who delves into its offerings. World Codex has grown into an extensive research project that I have supported and facilitated for more than a decade now. I feel that the time has finally come to share its revelations with the public at large. The stories and documented accounts that are pressed upon its pages run the gamut from thought-provoking and illuminating exposés to tales of mystery and drama. They have been collected, collated, and compiled by a concerted network of dedicated individuals, who have worked tirelessly to bring this literary publication to the world stage.

Codex
Special Edition
by The World Codex Staff

Overview


     Amidst rumor and innuendo, whether or not the narrative written by Herman Holmes is accurate remains a mystery.  There is some speculation that his account generates more than a minutia of doubt regarding his means of escape from the Titanic disaster; inconsistencies seem to plague his tale of survival.  There are those who share the opinion that it is possible Miss Barrett and Herman Holmes may have conspired to create additional drama and intrigue by hyperbolizing certain aspects of the events.  This supposition may be the real reason Planet Poetry never made it to publication in 1912, for fear that Miss Barrett’s and Herman Holmes’ versions of the story may have been discovered as being less than forthcoming.

Description


     The Planet Poetry publication encapsulates a snapshot of the era shortly after the turn of the 20th century. With the unearthing of its Waves of Wonder poetry contest, the wonder and fascination that Titanic holds have been once again brought to light. Were it not for the discovery of Planet Poetry, the ability to "time-travel" and visit its essential role in the literary past would have been missed entirely. The previously unpublished works by celebrities of its day make the doomed publication an echo of the fate of the Titanic herself, yet has now become an incredible treasure. From Albert Einstein to the very first poem, written by a young boy, Billy Kelly, traveling in third class, Planet Poetry provides a rare opportunity to peek into the diverse attitudes of the time. It is a quintessential and ancillary benefit of an ill-fated ocean voyage which unwittingly bridged the gap between Europe and America.

     Had it not been for the controversy that forced the publication to be shelved, perhaps the literary and academic world would have recorded history a bit differently. The editors, Robert Wolcott and Sylvia Barrett, were the impetus behind Planet Poetry. During their time abroad in Europe, as well as aboard ship, they managed to collect a few rare works and poems that were composed shortly before Titanic met her tragic fate. Also Included among the various poems is a first-hand account of how the collection was rescued from the ship shortly before she met her untimely demise. Later research into the chain of events culminated in a backstory that exacerbated the drama. It was presumed by some that Herman Holmes, who rescued the satchel of literary pieces, was the illegitimate son of H.H. Holmes. When rumors of this had spread within the social circles that Sylvia Barrett traveled among, she felt it wise to shelve Planet Poetry. Robert Wolcott, her close friend, and co-editor, sadly, was one of the many casualties during the night of April 14, 1912. Many believed that fact alone was the primary contributor convincing Sylvia Barrett to abort the literary venture.
