About the Author

Jeffrey Wainwright is a poet and Professor of English at Manchester Metropolitan University


Wainwright's essays on Geoffrey Hill draw on his discriminating ear and analytic intelligence to great effect. Wainwright is always compelling, so deep is his understanding of the poet, so keen his awareness of what is going on in the poet's language.' Martin Dodsworth, Royal Holloway (English: the journal of the English Association)
