Strangeness and Power: Essays on the Poetry of Geoffrey Hill

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Geoffrey Hill (1932–2016) was, by common consent, one of the finest poets in the English language in the second half of the 20th century, and the first decade of the 21st. This volume brings together essays comparing Hill’s work to that of Eliot and David Jones, J.H. Prynne, Denise Riley as well as covering specific works — in particular the later books, such as Speech! Speech! and Odi Barbare — and more general topics such as the relationship of his work to philosophy or 18th century literature.
