Considered to be among Australia's greatest poets, if not the most accomplished " scholar, satirist, poet, innovator, and character. "A great poet, a great soul and that rare bird today, 'an intellectual who is not sundered from the human race." ( P. Ryan) "-- his poems rely on world mythology, found in sources as diverse as the Bible, the literature of ancient Greece and Rome, the Italian Renaissance, and the Elizabethan period. His work reveals an obsession with the individual's capacity to rise above the mundane. It is "the poet's trade," Hope wrote in one of his poems, to remake and reshape world myths to help modern humankind validate its existence rather than sink into cynicism. " The poetry ---- is immensely sophisticated, erudite, witty, cosmopolitan, and highly literary in nature. Long a vocal enemy of free verse and lyricism, Hope has always written in formal structure."
