A new collection of poetry from England's most brilliant and provocative poet prophet. Hill's most recent books, "The Triumph of Love", "Orchards of Syon" and "Scenes from Comus", have received phenomenal reviews: 'With his new collection of poems, Geoffrey Hill so entirely eclipses most of his contemporaries that it seems meaningless to rank him in relation to them. Trumpets should be blown, garlands made, televisions turned off across the land and the book dropped free from aeroplanes ...he has never been more loquacious, playful, wildly comic or poignant. His greatness is as certain as that of the poets he invokes.' - "Telegraph". 'Hill can write lines with a deep gravelly ring to them which could only come from powerful thinking about the English language and its inner energies. He can describe England with a warm depth that no other living poet can match' - "Guardian". 'England's best hope for the Nobel Prize ...People who like poetry cannot get enough' - "Spectator".
