Alice Oswald: Nobody

Nature Unwrapped

Alice Oswald is our great living poet of nature. Her Nobody is a collage of water-stories, taken mostly from the Odyssey – about a minor character, abandoned on a stony island. Rather than a translation, it is a close inspection of the sea that surrounds him, its presiding spirit Proteus, the shape-shifting sea-god.

Listening to Alice Oswald’s poem Nobody is like watching the ocean: we slip our earthly moorings and follow the circling shoal of sea voices into a mesh of sound and light and water. As with all of Oswald’s work, this is poetry made for the human voice, and this live performance by the poet herself in combination with music by Ansuman Biswas, who performs on the aquaphone, offers a profound, unforgettable experience.
