The Progression of Our Times,
This review is from: Selected Poems (Paperback)
I find that Mr. Hill has progressed from a highly formal, carefully structured verse form to a looser, more boldly imaginative vernacular which is highly reminiscent, to my mind, of the transition made in Robert Lowell's writing career with equivalent results. Both are major poets who have shaped the way verse can be written and daringly re-imagined themselves in mid-career.
