  Re: Lit Crit
Hope has consistently denounced most of the century's literary fashions, from modernism on, and no important poet of his generation has made such consistent use of traditional forms, particularly those of the 18th century.
Hope has never been a poet who was afraid of attempting major themes, and from mid-career on he has been particularly successful.
Hope's achievement is considerable, his poems impressive in their passion, scope, and scale.

 Double Dialogues - In Dialogue with Alec Hope #1   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
ADH: No, the main trouble was that we were abandoning the house because it had been attacked by lions and tigers and, for some strange reason, we were getting into chaff bags to be hauled into a cart and driven away and my father wanted me to be put into his chaff bag.
ADH: Unfortunately no. My mother had trained to be a concert pianist and apparently was doing very well and she fell in love with a poor pastor and went off with him.
ADH: I suppose, even though it was a childish thing, seeing as I was devoted to poetry, that is what I wanted to be, but I was perfectly aware that you can’t live by it, particularly in England, because it gets a pretty short shrift.

 Judith Wright and A.D. Hope: giants of Australian culture   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
Judith Wright and A.D. Hope, perhaps the major Australian poets of the twentieth century and two of the University of Sydney's most illustrious former students, died in Canberra recently within three weeks of one another, Judith Wright on 26 June at the age of 85, and A.D. (Alec Derwent) Hope on 13 July aged 92.
Hope had long enjoyed an international reputation as one of the finest poets of his time, and with the death of Wright it has been said that Australia's conscience has lost its most powerful and eloquent voice.
Often a controversial poet, Hope was at different times known for his satire, his direct treatments of sexual subject matter, and his formal conservatism – he was once described as 'the greatest living eighteenth-century poet'.

 A D Hope
The Australian poet Alec Derwent Hope passed away on the 13th of July 2000.
Like many white Australians he felt torn between a passionate love for the "Nation of trees, drab green and desolate grey"; and a sense that his home down under was a long way from the centre of things.
A.D. Hope also knew of our need to turn from the world, in his reflection on the death of Pius XII, he speaks of the autumn trees at Amherst and what they teach him of human life.

 Classical Hexameter: A.D. Hope - Eratosphere
posted July 10, 2004 12:52 PM In his eighties Alec Derwent Hope wrote the Western Elegies, an immense valedictory on his life and an elegy for his wife Penelope.
posted July 10, 2004 10:58 PM Tim, I suppose you’re right that Hope’s hexameter there was classically based, or inspired, but to me this is quite satisfactorily analysed as unrhymed English accentual hexameter, with one or two unstressed syllables before each stress in most instances.
Without consciously imitating Hope, I’ve found myself using a pentameter similar to his on occasion, for example in Ern Malley’s Account of the Affair.

The Return of Persephone - Alec Derwent Hope Gliding through the still air, he made no sound; Wing-shod and deft, dropped almost at her feet, And searched the ghostly regiments and found The living eyes, the tremor of breath, the beat Of blood in all that bodiless underground.
She left her majesty; she loosed the zone Of darkness and put by the rod of dread.
Even as she turned with Hermes to depart, Looking her last on her grim ravisher For the first time she loved him from her heart.
