The--to him literally --soul-destroying effects of science and technology are frequently the targets of Thomas's bleak vision of the direction the world was taking in the 1960s and by H'm (1972) these forces are embodied in the menacing figure of the "Machine" which threatens not just the rural world but all human, and humane, life.
So, h'm, Jim got himself a peach basket and a ladder.
Thomas fully emerged as a metaphysical poet with the publication of the enigmatically entitled H'm, he did so partly in the guise of a latter-day Gnostic or Rabbinical Cabalist, turning away from orthodoxy to engage with the riddle of a universe whose nature was, he realised, grotesquely incompatible with the neat platitudes of conventional religious belief.
It is this concept of God as a baffling plurality of contradictory qualities--Elohim, Jehovah--that is shockingly explored in Thomas's H'm, where he deliberately alternates between reference to "God" and "the God," the latter being suggestive not only of the plural form of the Hebrew Elohim but also of the Gnostic belief in a multiplicity of divinities.
This notion of a bungling God is evident in the set of nine extraordinary poems about Creation that so singularly punctuate H'm.
If H'm is full of a sense of God the Elohim it is also deeply haunted by his belief in the Christian God of self-sacrifice and love.
It was Cyril's turn to say H'm, and he said it with a good deal of thoughtful fervor.
