This appeal is obviously connected with the ‘Lucifer’ poem, concerned with debating the angel’s loss or preservation of brightness after his fall. It seems odd to impose a group structure which severs ‘The Hands of God’ from two of the previous poems to which it is clearly linked in style, imagery and content.
