Published Date: 2013-11-30
Categories: Poetry
A new collection of poetry from Oxford Professor of Poetry, Geoffrey Hill, Clavics is intended as a tribute to early seventeenth-century poetry and music. It takes the form of an elegiac sequence for William Lawes, the Royalist musician killed at the Battle of Chester. Geoffrey Hill has previously taught at Leeds, Cambridge, and Boston University. "Complexities of pattern and dizzying shifts of tone will keep Hill's considerable, and considerably learned, following alertly delighted."--Publishers Weekly. "Readers of poetry, whatever 'school' they favor, will appreciate Hill's work."--Library Journal. "Clavics is wonderful for its sense of play in language and in time: words collapsing into other words, times collapsing into other times. Such play amounts at its best to what Hill himself calls 'wit let tipple into Grace'."--World Literature Today.

Geoffrey Hill Books, Geoffrey Hill poetry book The Orchards of Syon Authors: Geoffrey Hill
Publisher: Penguin Books
Published Date: 2002
Categories: Christian poetry, English
In the words of the magazine Poetry Review, a kind of late fury has gripped Geoffrey Hill in recent years after a decade's silence, with CANAAN (1996), THE LOVE TRIUMPH (1998), SPEECH! SPEECH! (2001) - all published in Penguin - and now this new volume. All these books are driven by a profound quarrel with the modern world. This new book consists of 72 numbered poems, each of 24 lines. Together they make up a kind of Dantean eclogue in which the landscape of Hill's youth - rural Worcestershire - offers a glimpse of paradise in the midst of the modern world. This is a major poet writing serious, beautiful poetry.
