5.0 out of 5 stars HOW THESE WORDS WERE BORN, 18 Dec 2013
B. G. Strand "strandbg" (England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Collected Poems (Paperback)
Published in 1985 this collection from 1959 through 1978 and and also brings together Hill's 'Hymns to our lady' (1984) and his masterpiece 'The Mystery of Charity' (1983) and 'Funeral Music:An Essay' (an 8 part sequence of structured prose).Hill also appends notes on the latter and on his 1971 'Mercian Hymns' both informative guidelines(from the horses mouth) to those who sometimes find his work 'difficult'.Hill of course can be difficult,without a doubt,but the collection contains many jewels of imagist lines ( an oasis in the desert so to speak)and a reward for the effort by the reader .Few other poets cover his range of topics in their posie.Hill concludes this notable collection with an apt epitaph with these final lines 'in memory of those things these words were born'.True words , the raison d'etre indeed, of all we poets.
