POEM Giles Goodland

NWR Issue 116

Freud Museum, Vienna

The psychic centre of the western world is
quiet, the empire emptied.
The hoardings on the street outside
reveal the unconscious
to be incorporated, corporate.

Giles Goodland was born in Taunton, was educated at the universities of Wales and California, took a D Phil at Oxford, has published several books of poetry, including A Spy in the House of Years (Leviathan, 2001), Capital (Salt, 2006) and Dumb Messengers (Salt, 2012). He works in Oxford as a lexicographer and lives in west London. His book, The Masses, is due early in 2018 from Shearsman.
