Listen to GEOFFREY HILL Podcasts

Professor Sir Geoffrey Hill

The English Faculty is saddened to learn of the death of Geoffrey Hill. Geoffrey studied English at Keble College, and went on to a distinguished career at Leeds, Cambridge, and Boston. Keble College elected him an Honorary Fellow; and he was, of course, for five years our Professor of Poetry, a role he fulfilled with immense charisma and brilliance. He was unquestionably one of the great poets and literary thinkers of his age, inimitable and irreplaceable: it was a privilege to have him a member of our Faculty.
