This paperback edition of Gerard Manley Hopkins's poems and prose arrived promptly and
in perfect condition.

These beautiful spiritual and ecologically motivated works are of lasting
value for all readers.

A long awaited acquisition, so there is emotional baggage here. The presentation of the volume is more sombre than I would have expected, given the vivid colouration of the poems; but this disappointment is compensated for by the sensitive selection of photographs/art works that accompany the text. The print and binding is, as one would expect, impeccable. A beautiful volume to handle and to cherish.

This poet always pleases, of course, but the presentation and paper quality is not the best.

Be warned that this hardcover edition is not the same as the paperback Everyman edition to which the "see inside" link will take you (and which is far better). This edition has no notes or editorial matter, and it is lacking any of the "fragments" which most editions contain. The old Penguin selection, and of course the new Oxford World's Classics one, are far more satisfactory.

This is a beautiful book from the Folio Society containing a collection of Hopkins' poems with suitably atmospheric illustrations by Elizabeth Magill I have enjoyed Hopkins' writing for years but it has been an added pleasure re-reading him in this lovely volume.

I needed this for my University course. So far it's been really useful.
Recommend for any Hopkins lovers or students.

nice lingo and all that, and you can see the influences fanned out in other writers, but just leaves me wanting something he never quite delivers
