The Nightfishing

The Nightfishing: Jonathan Davidson's adaptation of WS Graham's poem about a fishing trip, which touches on the difficulties of writing and of turning experience into words.

WS Graham's poem adapted for radio by Jonathan Davidson. With Siobhan Redmond and David Rintoul.

An attempt to make some sense of a difficult and elusive modern masterpiece. The poem was published in 1955. It tells of a fishing trip after herring but much else including the difficulties of writing and of turning experience into words. Its fresh-made language has found it many admirers but it also kept it from many other readers. Perhaps a radio adapatation can unlock it.
