POEMS: GERARD MANLEY HOPKINS. (this ed. 1999). ****.
This was a Folio Society publication, with an introduction and notes by Norman H. MacKenzie. Hopkins (1844-1889) was an English poet and a Roman Catholic convert. He became a priest in the S.J. order, and spent time in Ireland. His poems are not typical of those of most of the Victorian poets of the time. His work only became popular and available to the public after his death – primarily because of his duties to the priesthood. I have no idea

Picked this up in a tiny village in the Cotswolds, mostly because I like Hopkins, could stand to get further acquainted with him, and because I'm weak to a really pretty hardcover edition of poetry with its own case. Particularly when I'm on holiday. Even if it is a selected edition.

The poetry is the work of a saint. This priest's poetry is a little piece of heaven on earth. Awese
Some beautiful pieces of faith-inspired poetry; GMH does not ignore the pain of this life, though. Nevertheless, Hope triumphs over suffering, and through art, he expresses his love.

I have a much earlier edition - the third after the original edited by Robert Bridges - revised and published in 1960.
GMH is to me, the quintessential poet. His verse speaks so clearly and deeply of the life of creation, as well as his own heartfelt creative life.
I can scarcely say I have "read" his poems, for I read them again and again with new insights.

Gerard Manley Hopkins was an English poet, Roman Catholic convert, and Jesuit priest, whose 20th-century fame established him posthumously among the leading Victorian poets. His experimental explorations in prosody (especially sprung rhythm) and his use of imagery established him as a daring innovator in a period of largely traditional verse.
