Nocturne in Chrome and Sunset Yellow free pdf In this latest collection of poems, Hill invokes people and place, mythologizing and demythologizing city lives as they are led. From poignant vignettes and celebrations to urban-pastoral and elegy, these poems extend Hill's romance with London's psychic and surreal fabric. Selected as a Next Generation poet, Hill continues to delight us with sensuous observation and imaginative embrace. "Hill's special territory, in poetry and prose, is the 'urban-pastoral' ...his native North London is transformed, with many deftly dark touches, into an uneasy realm of the imagination. Hill clearly appreciated Simon Armitage's storytelling persona- he also drew upon observation of the natural world in ways associated with Ted Hughes. Much of his imagery is by turns delicately 'Japanese', or reminiscent of the heyday of Craig Raine's 'Martian' style. Hill has a romantic dimension in his work that is all his own. As a young man with an intense curiosity about the world, his work is full of sensual images, vignettes of city life - and romance ...these are poems of flirtation and desire." (contemporarywriters.co.uk). "The closeup detail taken directly from nature, then skewed through 90 to give the reader something completely new, even unique ...with this third collection, Hill promises to be a real force in poetry, displaying an utterly contemporary understanding of how nature continues to work." (Poetry Review). "There is a fin de siecle decadence about them ...not least in their brightly coloured diction, their luxuriant descriptiveness, their louche postures." (Poetry Wales). "Superb conjurations of place." (Adam Mars Jones). "Compassionate and intelligent ...so full of action and interest and that brings alive such an array of people and places, that it is difficult to believe they sprang from the pen of one writer." (Rachel Cusk).
