Product Description

Review

Review from previous edition Catherine Phillips's excellent edition of the poems...will be the standard reading text for many years to come. (Times Literary Supplement)

About the Author

Born in England in 1844, Gerard Manley Hopkins began writing poetry at an early age. In his early twenties, Hopkins converted from Anglicanism to Roman Catholicism and in 1868 joined the Society of Jesuits. Hopkins continued to write poems thereafter, while serving as a priest and university teacher, but he burned most of his early poems out of a deep sense of conflict between his art and his faith, and he published very little in his lifetime."God's Grandeur" appeared in the first collection of his poems, edited by his friend Robert Bridges and published in 1918, long after the poet's death in 1889.



Dr. Catherine Phillips is a psychologist with an interest in cancer care in both clinical and research settings. For over 15 years, she has been associated with the Healing Journey Program, which helps people cope more effectively with cancer and to live more fully in personally meaningful ways. A former contributor on health and wellness issues for Chatelaine magazine, she leads relaxation and support groups at Wellspring Centres in the Toronto area.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A difficult poet has been made relevant to a wider readership. By writing in detail about his life and associations the essence of what made him tick becomes clear. As an academic study, having so much of his corresponding with other poets replicated, reveals the depth of the poetic processes from that particular era. An interesting amount of his prose is also included. So the book looks a serious read at first but it becomes an enjoyable and enlightening one at the finish. For those of Anglo catholic beliefs, it is especially rewarding for showing the dedication Gerard gave to his ministry as a priest. This came well before his poetry, which would have been even greater if he had spent as much time on it as he did to his religious life.

PS. Gerards father and my grandfather were partners in business, hence the name of Manley given to my father and passed on to me.

I studied Gerard Manley Hopkins at school. However taking every line and word apart did nothing for me. If you read the poems out loud his use of words is wonderful and I believe this is the way to enjoy his writing.

This is the standard review of this poet of 100 years ago, one of the forerunners of the modern style.
