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new poetry collection from bestselling poet and priest Malcolm Guite features more than seventy new and previously unpublished works.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.
