Publisher Comments:

Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-1889) was a Jesuit priest whose poetry combined an awareness of material sensuousness with the asceticism of religious devotion. His collected poems, published posthumously in 1918, exercised a profound influence on modern poetry. This volume features all of Hopkins's mature work, offering a sampler of the poet's striking originality, intellectual depth, and perceptive vision. 

Featured works include his well-known elegy, "The Wreck of the Deutschland," "God's Grandeur," "Hurrahing in Harvest," "The Windhover," "Pied Beauty," and "Carrion Comfort." Additional verses include "The Caged Skylark," "The Bugler's First Communion," "The Starlight Night," "The Silver Jubilee," "Henry Purcell," "Andromeda," and others.
