Distinguished critics Harold Bloom and George Steiner have given homage to Hill's poetry, recognizing it to be one of the strongest corpora in contemporary literature. In English literature, Hill is thought to be the most remarkable figure of his generation. Hill's poetry works on a European scale, seeking to measure the cataclysms on the continent during the 20th Century, without pessimistic resignation. Multiple aspects of modernity (literary, historical, political, theological, philosophical) are declined in his poetry.
