Description

A sampling from the oeuvre of one of the greatest living poets of the English language

Geoffrey Hill's poetry comprises one of the most uncompromising and visionary bodies of work written over the last fifty years. Imbued with the weight of history, morality, and language, his work reveals a deeply religious sensibility, a towering intellect, and an emotional complexity that are unrivaled in contemporary letters. Now, for the first time ever, readers can observe in one volume how Hill's style took shape over time. This generous selection spans his career, beginning with poems from Hill's astonishing debut, For the Unfallen, and following through to his stylistically distinct and critically acclaimed work Without Title. Including some of the poet's strongest, most sensitive, and most brilliant pieces, this collection will reaffirm Hill's reputation as "England's best hope for the Nobel Prize."
