Gerard Manley Hopkins

The Major Works

by Gerard Manley Hopkins

This author­i­ta­tive edi­tion brings togeth­er all of Hop­kin­s’s poet­ry and a gen­er­ous selec­tion of his prose writ­ings to explore the essence of his work and think­ing.

Ger­ard Man­ley Hop­kins (184489) was one of the most inno­v­a­tive of nine­teenth-cen­tu­ry poets. Dur­ing his trag­i­cal­ly short life he strove to rec­on­cile his reli­gious and artis­tic voca­tions, and this edi­tion demon­strates the range of his inter­ests. It includes all his poet­ry, from best-known works such as The Wreck of the Deutsch­land” and The Wind­hover” to trans­la­tions, for­eign lan­guage poems, plays, and verse frag­ments, and the recent­ly dis­cov­ered poem Con­sule Jones”. In addi­tion there are excerpts from Hop­kin­s’s jour­nals, let­ters, and spir­i­tu­al writ­ings. The poems are print­ed in chrono­log­i­cal order to show Hop­kin­s’s chang­ing pre­oc­cu­pa­tions, and all the texts have been estab­lished from orig­i­nal man­u­scripts.
