From Publishers Weekly
When most people today hear the name Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-1889), they remember him as a British poet. But during his lifetime he was known primarily as a Jesuit priest, a zealous Roman Catholic who converted from Anglicanism at the age of 22 and devoted his life including his literary talents to the Catholic Church. According to his own wishes, most of his poems were not published until after his death. In Mortal Beauty, God's Grace: Major Poems and Spiritual Writings of Gerard Manley Hopkins, John Thornton and Susan Varenne gather not just Hopkins's spiritual poetry, but also some relevant "weather journal" entries (which use seemingly mundane observations on the weather as springboards to spiritual prose) and letters, including personal letters about his conversion.

Speak What We Feel: Not What We Ought to Say: foour Who Wrote in Blook: G.K. Chesterton, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Mark Twain, William Shakespeare

Book Review
Great literature is like a spiritual informant, helping readers derive meaning out of the best of times and the worst of times. In Speak What We Feel, novelist and preacher Frederick Buechner pays homage to the worst of times, examining the life and writings of four esteemed writers and how they each came to terms with despair on the page. The title, Speak What We Feel, alludes to the bravery of William Shakespeare, Gerald Manley Hopkins, Mark Twain, and G.K. Chesterton--all of whom opened the veins to their hearts and let their emotions bleed upon the page. "Vein-opening writers are putting not just themselves into their books, but themselves at their nakedest and most vulnerable," writes Buechner. Not all writers do it all the time, he notes, and many writers never do it at all. "But for the four writers these pages are...

Gerard Manley Hopkins and Victorian Catholicism
Jill Muller

Aug 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Although largely unknown in his lifetime, Gerard Manley Hopkins was, Jill Muller contends, the 'heart in hiding' of Victorian Catholicism. Investigations of Hopkins's spirituality have too often detached his beliefs from their local habitation in a newly industrialized, historically anti-Catholic and increasingly secular England. This book restores the poet to his full intellectual and literary context by exploring his responses to the writings of his Catholic contemporaries, and by situating the preoccupations, dramas and disappointments of his life in the wider setting of Victorian Catholic culture.

Drawing on historical and cultural studies of Victorian Catholicism, along with Hopkins's writings, Muller shows how the melancholy trajectory of the Jesuit poet's career mimics the deflation of Catholic hopes...

Book Description
In his poetry Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-89) sought to discover afresh the potentialities of language, and to that end developed his idiosyncratic theories of instress, inscape and sprung rhythm. Hopkins's verse is also informed by his religious beliefs; having converted to the Roman Catholic Church in 1866, he became a Jesuit priest eleven years later. However, his poetry is free from a sense of religious dogma, and instead offers a whole-hearted involvement with all aspects of life, a love of nature and a search for a unifying sacramental view of creation. His best-known poems include 'The Wreck of the Deutschland', 'The Windhover', 'Pied Beauty', 'Spring and Fall', 'Carrion Comfort' and 'Harry Ploughman'.
