After Nature is the very first literary work by W. G. Sebald, author of Austerlitz

After Nature by W.G. Sebald, author of Austerlitz, is his first literary work and the start of his highly personal and brilliant writing journey.

In this long prose poem, Sebald introduces many of the themes that he explores in his subsequent books. Focusing on the conflict between man and nature, each of the three distinct parts of After Nature give centre stage to a different character from a different century - the last being W.G. Sebald himself.

'A deeply intelligent book, but also a marvellously warm, exciting and compassionate one' Andrew Motion

'A début of rare poetic grandeur' Irish Times

'Astonishing writing. A true poet at work' Evening Standard

'Graceful, allusive, serious, but also immensely readable' Sunday Telegraph

'When you read Sebald you are transported to another realm' Literary Review
