Whale Nation written by Heathcote Williams. Heathcote Williams (born 15 November 1941) is an English poet, actor and award-winning playwright. He is perhaps best known for the book-length polemical poem Whale Nation, which in 1988 became "the most powerful argument for the newly instigated worldwide ban on whaling."
