CHOICE Review

Some claim Geoffrey Hill (Univ. of Oxford, UK) as the finest living English poet. Compiled by Kenneth Haynes (Brown), who also edited Hill's Collected Critical Writings (2008), this collection is substantial, comprising as it does 20 individual volumes. Since 1997, the year he published Canaan, Hill has produced nine collections of poetry. Four have never before been published, and three of them were extensively revised for the present volume. Most of the poems in this volume were produced since the mid-1990s. Admirers and skeptics alike will find this collection invaluable for evaluating Hill's challenging poetry. Some readers may be disappointed that Broken Hierarchies offers no introduction or notes to Hill's difficult poetry. However, most readers will be struck by the many voices of his verse, its wit, its comedy, its originality. --Jeffrey Scott Baggett, Lander University
