After Prayer: New sonnets and other poems [9781786222107]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

This major new poetry collection from bestselling poet and priest Malcolm Guite features more than seventy new and previously unpublished works. At the heart of this collection is a sequence of twenty seven sonnets written in response to George Herbert's exquisite sonnet 'Prayer', each one describing prayer in an arresting metaphor such as `the church's banquet', `reversed thunder', `the Milky Way', `the bird of paradise' and `something understood'. In conversation with each of these, Malcolm's sonnets offer profound insights into the nature of communion with God in all circumstances and conditions. Recognising that all poetry is a pursuit of prayer, After Prayer also includes forty five more widely ranging new poems, including a sonnet sequence on the seven heavens.

AUTHOR: Malcolm Guite is Chaplain of Girton College, Cambridge. A accomplished and highly popular performance poet and singer/songwriter, he lectures widely on poetry and theology in Britain and the US.
