Hill, always the heir of William Blake and D.H.Lawrence, more than confirms his calling as poet-prophet in The Triumph of Love. The poem is a great and difficult moral, cognitive, and aesthetic achievement - a sad and angry consolation almost beyond measure. Harold Bloom. William Logan in New Criterion wrote: Hills poetry is the major achievement of late-twentieth-century verse. The Triumph of Love is a passionate and thoughtful response to the horrors of World War II in poetry by turns playful, punning, scorching and contemptuous.

Although set in the context of the century, it ranges widely through history, literature and art. Born in 1932 in Worcestershire, Geoffrey Hill was for many years a university teacher, both in the UK and in the Unite States. In 1996 he published Canaan. The Triumph of Love was followed by Speech! Speech! (2000), The Orchards of Syon (2002), Scenes from Comus (2005) and Without Title (2006). His Selected Poems (Penguin) appeared in 2006.
