Product Description

Synopsis

Collection of poems by Hopkins, nearly all first published after his death, by UK poet laureate Robert Bridges, whom no one today has heard of -- go figure.

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.

I give it 2 not 3 stars since 2and a half is not an option. It's more "just about acceptable" than "OK".

No spacing between Titles and end of previous poems. Best read in landscape on the kindle. Individual Poems cannot be navigated to from contents. One for fans of Hopkins only I would suggest.

However everything seems to be here. If it was revised according to the suggestions it would be worth 5 stars.

The poems are wonderful, and all praise goes to Hopkins for writing them, but none at all to Amazon for producing this edition. Their sole concern seems to have been fitting the poems into as few pages as possible. The typeface is tiny, there's no space between the poems and no regard to page breaks, so it's hard to tell where one poem ends and the next begins. There's no index or contents, so to find any particular poem you have to flick through the whole book, preferably with a magnifying glass if you don't have perfect eyesight. I'm amazed they have the nerve to sell this. They could only get away with it online, if you picked this up in a bookshop you'd never buy it.

I'm an old acquaintance of GMH, having ben introduced to one of his works at school (I'm nearly 77 now). But I have since read perhaps all his work, and am among those who see him as the greatest English poet of all time. This book of course bears that out.

Is the layout a joke? A "creative" exercise? Then I am not getting it, sorry. It's horrendous. Printing on the edge of pages. Pages of different sizes. First page askew, with the title printed certainly not in the middle. Please explain.
