Hooker's most recent book "The Cut of the Light: Poems 1965-2005" draws extensively on poetry he wrote over a period of forty years and contains early, previously unpublished poems and some new versions of later work. It shows the development of a poetry concerned with nature and history and the spirit of place, and includes both formal variety and the "art of seeing" which relates Hooker to a vital tradition of British and American poetry. The book has been selected as one of ten English language finalists for the 2006 Wales Book of the Year award.
