Not available


A beautiful, small format hardcover edition of Gerard Manley Hopkins, one of the great stylists in English poetry. AN EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY POCKET POET.
Gerard Manley Hopkins, who was known during his lifetime not as a poet but as a Jesuit priest, combined an intense feeling for nature with an ecstatic awareness of its divine origins. He was also one of English poetry’s greatest stylistic innovators, and his poems reveal an unprecedented constructive imagination in the service of a vision of reality which is equally original.
This Everyman’s Library Pocket Poets hardcover edition collects Hopkins's most beloved work—selected verse, prose, and letters—including:

• “The Sea and the Skylark”
• “Binsey Poplars”
• “Carrion Comfort”
• “Felix Randal”
• “Pied Beauty”
• “Spelt from Sybil’s Leaves”
• “The Wreck of the Deutschland”
• “The Windhover”
Everyman's Library pursues the highest production standards, printing on acid-free cream-colored paper, with full-cloth cases with two-color foil stamping, decorative endpapers, silk ribbon markers, European-style half-round spines, and a jewel-toned jacket.

About the Author

Gerard Manley Hopkins is one of English poetry's most brilliant stylistic innovators, and one of the most distinguished poets of any age. However, during his lifetime he was known not as a poet but as a Jesuit priest, and his faith was essential to his work. His writings combine an intense feeling for nature with an ecstatic awareness of its divine origins, most remarkably expressed in his magnificent and highly original 'sprung rhythm.'This collection contains not only all of Hopkins’ significant poetry, but also selections from his journals, sermons, and letters, all chosen for their spiritual guidance and insight. Hopkins didn't allow the publication of most of his poems during his lifetime, so his genius was not appreciated until after his death. Now, more than a hundred years later, his words are still a source of inspiration and sheer infectious joy in the radiance of God's creation.
