Anthony Wilson reading from Deck Shoes and the Afterlife John Wedgwood-Clarke. Landfill and new poems

46 The Quay, Exeter, Devon, EX2 4AN

Tel: 07787126491



Anthony Wilson's poems explore the borderline territory between grief and laughter, memory and forgetting, illness and health. His central subject is the way we live within family and community, questioning the roles we construct, both alone and with others. The Afterlife continues to pursue themes developed in his last collection with Worple, Riddance: mortality, mental health, the relation between body and soul, and how to live fully in the present moment. Anthony Wilson works in teaching and medical education at the University of Exeter where he is a member of the Centre for Research in Writing. He is the author of Lifesaving Poems (Bloodaxe, 2015) and Love for Now (Impress Books, 2012), a memoir of cancer. The Afterlife is his fifth collection of poems.

A reading of new poems by John Wedgwood Clarke about growing up in Cornwall, alongside poems from his most recent collection Landfill (2017), which explores the shifting physical and emotional boundaries between the rubbish and the valuable.
