Warwick Thursday WEEK 10 - David Herd: Walk Song (Author)
David Herd is the author of numerous books of poetry and prose. His 2012 collection, All Just, was described by the Los Angeles Review ofBooks as ‘one of the few truly necessary works of poetry written on either side of the Atlantic in the past decade’.
Through, published in 2016, was a Book of the Year in The Heraldnewspaper.
He has given readings and lectures in Europe, North America, India and Australia and has held visiting fellowships at George Mason University, Simon Fraser University and the Writing Center Gloucester, MA. He is Professor of Modern Literature at the University of Kent and a co-organiser of the project Refugee Tales.
Written between 2015 and 2020, David Herd’s new collection, Walk Song, weaves in and out of the Refugee Tales project. Addressing the environments contemporary politics has made, including the border and its hostilities, the poems set out the need for a language of welcome. Through its exploration of landscape and politics, friendship and movement, the book builds, across a series of poetic sequences, towards action and hope.
