Gerard Manley Hopkins
Oxford University Press, 1986 - Literary Criticism - 429 pages
The work of Gerard Manley Hopkins, one of the most original and influential poets of the 19th century, is gathered here in its entirety. Arranged in chronological order to show the full range of his poetic interests at each stage of his eventful life, the poems are complemented by selections from Hopkin's journals, sermons, and letters, which offer prose perspectives on the concerns which surface in the verse. Editor Catherine Phillips has gone back to the original manuscripts in order to present a more accurate version of the poems than has previously been available, thus revealing the poet's own taste more fully than has ever been possible.
