This volume represents the first "Collected Poems" by Geoffrey Hill, as well as the first retrospective edition of his work. Hill is considered by some critics as one of the top five poets writing today, producing poetry that is dense, allusive and imaginative.

Charles Tomlinson is an editor, a critic, a translator, an artist, and an internationally acclaimed poet. He is the author of Cracks in the Universe and Skywriting.Review:
'Tomlinson insists, and he has a right to insist, that he is as authentic a voice of modern Britain as Larkin is - Only in the great poets is content so intimately married to form'. - Donald Davie 'Against the word as spectacle, Tomlinson opposes the concept - a very English one - of the world as event - He is fascinated - with his eyes open: a lucid fascination - by the universal busyness, the continuous generation and degeneration of things'. - Octavio Paz 'He has divided his line according to a new measure learned, perhaps, for a new world. It gives a refreshing rustle or seething to the words which bespeak the entrance of a new life'. - William Carlos Williams. 'Tomlinson, born in 1927, is a unique voice in contemporary English poetry, and has been a satellite of excellence for the past 50 years' David Morley, Guardian. 'Few poets are as natural or as exact as Charles Tomlinson - it's as if all his experience is waiting to be trapped'. Matthew Sweeney, Observer.
