Synopsis
Here is public poetry of uncommon moral urgency: it bears witness to the sufferings of the innocent at the hands of history and to the martyrdom of those who have dared look history in the eye. "Rich, quarrelsome...handsome and brutish...Hill's poetry is the major achievement of late-twentieth-century verse," says The New Criterion. "Canaan is one of the few serious books we will have to mark the millennium."
Amazon.com Review
The Washington Post Book World refers to the "sensuality and coiled force" of Geoffrey Hill's poetry, and Donald Hall calls him "the best English poet of the twentieth century." In this collection, Hill takes on the role of prophet and witness, expressing outrage over England's recent history and politics. There is a deeper resonance in the writing, too, which is alluded to in the title. Hill suggests that most of human history and politics is corrupt and inhumane, and he is angry. Hill's is powerful writing that marries the earthly and the spiritual.
