Overview

Gerard Woodward's previous collection, Householder, won him immediate recognition as a poet of immense promise; it received the Somerset Maugham Award and was a Poetry Book Society Choice.



After The Deafening is the realisation of that promise, a book in which common events are enlarged under the lens of the poet's powerful imagination. Each poem begins as an expedition into a familiar world, but the flowers, fruits and insects of that world take on a puzzling, almost supernatural, significance. Gerard Woodward writes the science-fiction of everyday life.
