A Treatise of Civil Power: the original title poem, Geoffrey Hill


The original title poem – uncollected now reprinted.



The original title poem – uncollected now reprinted.

This is the forty-two stanza title poem to the original Clutag Press ‘booklet’ as Hill referred to it. It was not included in the book of the same name, except through a few dispersed fragments. Nor was it included in the collected poems. The original pamphlet is out of print and because of copyright complications not reprintable. But here for readers who do not have the ‘booklet’ is the whole poem uniquely available in new hand-sewn 20pp pamphlet. A vital addition to your library issued with the full support of The Estate of Geoffrey Hill.
