Delicious reading

by Ruth H on Dec 2, 2010

Fully half of this book is biographical and instructional commentary. The collection of poems contains both brilliant and opaque (the Latin ones are beyond my elementary Latin), but fascinating reading for anyone who is dazzled by Hopkin's use of language in Pied Beauty, or God's Grandeur.


Short and Sweet

While Hopkins never got the chance to write a huge canon of poetry, his sprung rhythm and theory of inscape make his poetry unbelievably complex and downright enjoyable. He deals with perhaps the most important idea that faces man, identifying "What I do is me; For what I came." Great poet great book

Edited by one of the great Hopkinsian scholars of all time, this anthology is the "gold standard." One of its benefits is that is coincides with the editor's excellent commentary on the poems of Gerard Manley Hopkins.
