The Water Table, Paperback


A powerful and ambiguous body of water lies at the heart of these poems, with shoals and channels that change with the forty-foot tide.

Even the name is fluid - from one shore, the Bristol Channel, from the other Mor Hafren, the Severn Sea.

Philip Gross' meditations move with subtle steps between these shifting grounds and those of the man-made world, the aging body and that ever-present mystery, the self.

Admirers of his work know each new collection is a new stage; this one marks a crossing into a new questioning, new clarity and depth.
