Format: Paperback
I have been using this book for my A Level coursework, and can happily say that it has a great variety of poems. Obviously given the volume of work Hardy produced over his lifetime, it doesn't have everything, but from my counting it definitely has a good few hundred poems. I personally am doing an essay on religion and have found everything I needed in this book.

the greatest poetry ever written 4 Jun. 2001
By gabrielle leblanc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Gerard Manley Hopkins is the greatest English poet to ever put pen to paper, bar none. Yes, even better than Shakespeare. Every student of English lit should read Hopkins. Hopkins writes from a profound love and awe of God and the beauty of His creations, but also from a deep despair resulting from chronic depression. His mastery of classical English combined with his magic use of sounds and word inventions is sheer genius. Read him.
