Deep Field

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    A closely integrated poetry collection in several long sequences in which Philip Gross explores the issues raised by his father's loss of language to deafness and aphasia in old age. His father was a wartime refugee from Estonia and formerly spoke four or five languages. The poems weave personal biography with an examination of voice, of language and identity, further developing the themes of Gross's T.S.Eliot-prize-winning collection The Water Table.
