Poetry and Prose by Gerard Manley Hopkins
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In his poetry Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-89) sought to discover afresh the potentialities of language, and to that end developed his idiosyncratic theories of instress, inscape and sprung rhythm. Hopkins's verse is also informed by his religious beliefs; having converted to the Roman Catholic Church in 1866, he became a Jesuit priest eleven years later. However, his poetry is free from a sense of religious dogma, and instead offers a whole-hearted involvement with all aspects of life, a love of nature and a search for a unifying sacramental view of creation. His best-known poems include 'The Wreck of the Deutschland', 'The Windhover', 'Pied Beauty', 'Spring and Fall', 'Carrion Comfort' and 'Harry Ploughman'.
