"The year ineluctably turning. Birth hurtling slowly toward death. Experience becoming memory, remembrance becoming forgetfulness and, finally, oblivion. This is the waking dream of life as hauntingly dreamt by Geoffrey Hill." "As we set out with the poet on his sleepwalk, horrors catch our affrighted eye, "murder, or murderous fantasy: wherever you look the leaves hanging blood-brown, more real than unreal." But our eye is caught also by beauty, and our heart and our mind pierced by it, and together they "renegotiate the sleep-veil, admit that other world this fantasizing world conspires for and against us." Nature, the remembered landscape of childhood, great poetry and music and images of faith, all offer glimpses into the real life to come - a life not of wisdom or the illusion of wisdom, but of truth."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
