4.0 out of 5 stars What's become of Hill?, 11 May 2001
This review is from: Speech! Speech! (Hardcover)
What's become of Hill? In The Triumph of Love and in this book Hill has shown a sense of humour -not a gentle one of course- as well as his usual costive wit. He is still concerned with human evil and heroism and the conscience; you still find yourself doing a crash-course in Reformation and Renascence morality and theology and looking up people you hadn't heard of- Nigerian soldiers or German anti-Nazis for example- but Hill seems to have stopped trying to fit all of our moral concerns into a terse poem where the placement of the opening of a parenthesis is a vital moral judgment and a reference to a mediaeval philosopher changes a poem's meaning.
