Closer to Dylan Thomas than Matthew Arnold in his 'creative violence' and insistence on the sound of poetry, Gerard Manley Hopkins was no staid, conventional Victorian. On entering the Society of Jesus at the age of twenty-four, he burnt all his poetry and 'resolved to write no more, as not belonging to my profession, unless by the wishes of my superiors'. The poems, letters and journal entries selected for this edition were written in the following twenty years of his life, and published posthumously in 1918. His verse is wrought from the creative tensions and paradoxes of a poet-priest who wanted to evoke the spiritual essence of nature sensuously, and to communicate this revelation in natural language and speech-rhythms while using condensed, innovative diction and all the skills of poetic artifice.

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'.

Gerard Manley Hopkins's verse contains the unique paradox of a poet-priest who wanted to evoke the spiritual essence of nature sensuously, and to communicate this revelation using innovative technique and natural language. This collection gives voice to his feelings of intense spiritual longing. Through his exceptional ability as a writer, Hopkins created tuneless expressions of the eternal religious expressions that will find resonance with contemporary spiritual seekers. Longing and faith -- both constant elements of spirituality -- are here so exquisitely expressed as to give this collection great meaning for today. "Gerard Manley Hopkins" (1844-1889) was a Jesuit priest and poet. Although his body of work is small, he ranks high among English poets and was extremely influential on twentieth-century poetry.

drowned in his passage from Chester on the Irish Seas, 1637;
and, by occasion, foretells the ruin of our corrupted Clergy,
then in their height.


Yet once more, O ye laurels, and once more,
Ye myrtles brown, with ivy never sere,
