About the Author

Gerard M. Hopkins was born on July 28, 1844 in England, into a large and talented family. He attended Oxford, and entered the Jesuits in 1868. He later studied theology and, after destroying much of his youthful poetry, took up writing. In 1877, Hopkins was ordained as a priest. He was assigned to mostrar mais several churches and continued to write poetry, none of which was published until after his death. Hopkins's poems are noted for their intricate rhythm, which he labeled sprung rhythm. The poems are exemplified by their clever puns, wordplay and imaginative phrasing. His works include several series of sonnets, such as Pied Beauty and The Windhover, as well as "terrible" sonnets that explore the conflict between his sexual longing and his devotion to God. Gerard M. Hopkins died of typhoid fever on June 8, 1889, in Ireland. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

An absolutely fascinating poet, whose mind I am still attempting to wrap myself around.

It is kind of understandable why they thought these poems "unpublishable" in the Victorian era. Formally they most definitely feel "modern" even looking at them today but unfortunately thematically and in their language they are still badly dated Victorian.

I have only completed a selection of poetry:

The Windhover
God's Grandeur
Pied Beauty
The Caged Skylark
Carrion Comfort
No worst
The Wreck of the Deutschland

I enjoyed the poet's style and use of stanzas; most poems were short. Many were about his spiritual struggles or emotional conflicts. His poetry was similar to King David's of the Old Testament who also wrestled with contradictory feuds between personal defeat and victory, despair and encouragement, and anxiety and peace.… (mais)

People pretend to enjoy Hopkins because they're told to. They're told to because it serves certain schools that have to be propped up artificially because they cannot stand on their own. Hopkins could have been a good poet if he'd bothered writing poetry. Instead, he fuddled about with obscurity and novelty, making himself a cause for future destroyers to take up in order to bolster their own nonsense. Anyone who says they like this stuff can be safely ignored and their opinions on any other poet dismissed out of hand.… (mais)
