48pp. Very good, clean, bright, tight, almost as new copy, unpriceclipped. " After the expansiveness of "Mercian Hymns", Hill returns to tight forms and religious themes in Tenebrae with astonishing results. The opening poem, "The Pentecost Castle", picks up Spanish love poetry to fabricate a beautiful, yet painful, music. Pain is not absent from the sonnet sequence "Lachrimae" either; it is there in the address to the "Crucified Lord" who swims endlessly on his cross without moving. these poems will strike a chord in many who have felt the agony of love and faith and faithlesness" (Amazon)
