"All things therefore are charged with God and, if we know how to touch them, give off sparks and take fire, yield drops and flow, ring and tell of him." Gerard Manley Hopkins"
From the Inside Flap
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.

In addition to his poems there is a selection of his sermons, some diary extracts and also letters concerning his own spiritual growth. Moreover there are some of his short spiritual writings at the back, including a commentary on the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius. all round a very commendable volume of his works. The one thing I'mm not sure of is the combination of colours on the cover which, at first glance, make it look as though there is a crease in the cover.
