Hailed as "the best poet writing in England" (Michael Longley, The Guardian) and "a magnificent poet" (Poetry), Geoffrey Hill has produced powerfully mythic verse that distinguishes him as a contemporary poet in allegiance with the great tradition. Complex yet spare, Hill is a poet of despair and redemption whose work contains some of contemporary poetry's most powerful moments. This collection brings together for the first time the poems appearing in five previous books, including the acclaimed long poem The Mystery of the Charity of Charles Peguy; also here are three hitherto unpublished poems, Hymns to Our Lady of Chartres.
