9780141025001: Selected Poems

The first Selected from 'England's most important living poet' The Times

'Hill so entirely eclipses most of his contemporaries that it seems meaningless to rank in relation to them. Trumpets should be blown, garlands made ... loquacious, playful, wildly comic ... poignant. His greatness is as certain as that of the poets he invokes' Daily Telegraph

'Whatever the densities of Hill's expression, or the powerful impacted forces in his syntax and rhythms, this poetry achieves a strength, memorability and precision beyond the abilities of any other poet writing in English' Peter McDonald, TLS

Product Description:

This first selection of Geoffrey Hill's poetry charts the evolution of a complex, uncompromising, visionary body of work over fifty years. It includes poems from Hill's astonishing debut, For the Unfallen, through the verset-sequence Mercian Hymns, to acclaimed recent work, including The Orchards of Syon and Without Title.

Review:

England's most important living poet (Times)

Hill so entirely eclipses most of his contemporaries that it seems meaningless to rank in relation to them. Trumpets should be blown, garlands made ... loquacious, playful, wildly comic ... poignant. His greatness is as certain as that of the poets he invokes (Daily Telegraph)

Whatever the densities of Hill's expression, or the powerful impacted forces in his syntax and rhythms, this poetry achieves a strength, memorability and precision beyond the abilities of any other poet writing in English (TLS)
