"A poet who might have taught him not by slogan but example is Geoffrey Hill, whose sense of ‘pitch’ – a legacy from Hopkins – is to do with inherence, the poet occupying the poem rather than vacating it by means of irony or fragmentation. Successful inherence makes a poem accountable and impossible to parody. By contrast, tone is performative, voice controlled by a will outside the voice." Michael Schmidt on a new anthology • PN Review
