Geoffrey Hill's latest book takes its title from an obscure pamphlet of Milton's, a poet in whose footsteps Hill can justly claim to follow. Again we confront his usual obsessions - language, governance, war, politics, the contemporary and classical worlds and the nature of poetry itself. This is without a doubt the work of a major poet, writing at the height of his powers.
