Sir Geoffrey Hill is routinely described as one of the greatest poets working in English. His collections include King Log, Mercian Hymns, Canaan, The Orchards of Syon and, more recently, Clavics and Odi Barbare, shortlisted for this year’s Forward Prize. Oxford University Press published his Collected Critical Writings in 2008 and will publish his Collected Poems in 2013. He is Professor of Poetry at Oxford.
“Hill has the pulse of English inside, knowing like a lawyer all its loopholes and vagrancies.” – William Logan, The New Criterion"
“Hill’s wracked visions call forth language of great beauty, clever coinages and wracked wit.” – Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World"
