Paperback : 01 Jun 2006


The brightest lights in contemporary British poetry in one utterly irresistible series


"The first Selected Poems 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
