Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

The scale and consistency of this volume, meticulously edited by Kenneth Haynes, and handsomely, if rather minutely, set out, with plenty og white space around poems and ajacket bearing an image from Kokoschka, give it a monumental air ... At the vital, latter end of the book there are huge achievements and intrictae exercises, experimental in their rigour. Hill's scraggy apple tree is indeed an emblem of his stupendous late-spring flowering. (John Kerrigan, The Time Literary Supplement)

Broken Hierarchies possesses a magisterial intellectual sweep and sense of literary high ambition which is perhaps unique in contemporary English poetry. (Terry Kelly, London Magazine)

Hill has for 40-odd years kept his language as close-textured, tough, knotted and lyrical as poetry can be. If he makes old Eliot seem by comparison an easy read it is not for mere show; these poems are as beautiful, hard, compressed and granular as the rocks and stones and trees from which they are made. (Fred Inglis, The Times Higher Education Supplement)

If the phrase 'greatest living poet in the English language' has any meaning, then we should use it to describe Hill. (Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian)

He can rival the best. (Jeremy Noel-Tod, The Sunday Times)

our greatest post-war poet ... Now arrives the summation of his lifes work: Broken Hierarchies: Poems 1952-2012. (Sameer Rahim, The Telegraph)

The one certain genius now at work in the English Language (Alan Marshall, Sunday Telegraph)

Anyone who reads Broken Hierarchies through will recognise that Hill is seriously good, and that he probably belongs among the great. (Colin Burrow, London Review of Books)

The greatest living English poet. (Michael Dirda, Washington Post)

By far the most distinguished exponent of his calling yet alive. (A.N. Wilson, Daily Telegraph)

Just a thousand pages of verse from perhaps our greatest living poet. (Oxford Today)

Our greatest living poet is a reminder to those in public life of the energy of intelligence created by the writing and criticism of poetry. (Daniel Johnson, Standpoint)

Recommended Summer Reading: Astonishing (Rachel Polonsky, Times Literary Supplement)

These volumes include some of the finest, most astringent verse of the twentieth century ... nearly impeccable. (Caleb Caldwell, Make Literary Magazine)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Broken Hierarchies collects twenty books of poems by Geoffrey Hill, written over sixty years, and presents them in their definitive form. Four of these books (Ludo, Expostulations on the Volcano, Liber Illustrium Virorum, and Al Tempo de' Tremuoti) have never before appeared in print, and three of them (Hymns to Our Lady of Chartres, Pindarics, and Clavics) have been greatly revised and expanded.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hill's Work Gathered 30 mars 2014
Par Mark D. Burgh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
If you love Geoffrey Hill's poetry, this mammoth volume will occupy you for a long time. Containing all of Hill's books, Broken Hierarchies also gives us additional materials such as his daybooks. A complex poet, Hill examines his English heritage mediated by the horrors of 20th century war. It is a good idea to have a reference book, or at least Wikipedia at hand, since some of his references may not be familiar to many people, myself included. But Hill's poetry immense humanity speaks to the inherent generosity of spirit battered so by human existence. A masterpiece by a true master.

I do not believe that anyone who has not studied the European classics in full depth will ever fully understand the references in this obscure dense collection of poetry, That said, there is reward throughout in showing what is possible with language when there is no filter for an insistently individual and often deadly ironic voice.

Those, blessed I should say, who think Hill not just a great poet but merely the greatest poet of the last sixty years composing in English will finally be able to set aside/sell in the market square/consume in thankful fire their much thumbed, pass yellowed copy of his last volume of collected poems, issued in the gray days of John Major, when the ground still lay covered with the cinders of Maggie Tatcher's august reign. Sunt lacrimae rerum indeed.

The life's work of a great poet - the kind of texts that will still be read in 100 or 200 years, not just the next 10.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Best Poetry of the twentieth and early twenty-first Centuries--Magnificent. Gives Keats and Shelley a Run for Their Money. 8 juillet 2014
Par inthefoam - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
The finest poet of our times writes stimulating, in-depth poetry that requires rigorous attention from the reader. 'This edition should be owned *( and read and read and read) by any reader with who the best poetry written in the last 100 years. Yeats, by comparison, is a writer for chlldren. The allusions need to be understood and any superficial reading of these poems means that the reader is saturated in mediocrity.
