“With living colours give my verse to glow:

The sad memorial of a tale of woe!”

– William Falconer, The Shipwreck

His most important work, The Shipwreck, was written in 1762 and gained him instant and immense success. The story follows the adventure on an English ship headed home but was wrecked in Greece.
