|Author/Contributor(s):||Hopkins, Gerard Manley|
Gerard Manley Hopkins, who was known during his lifetime not as a poet but as a Jesuit priest, combined an intense feeling for nature with an ecstatic awareness of its divine origins. He was also one of English poetry’s greatest stylistic innovators, and his poems reveal an unprecedented constructive imagination in the service of a vision of reality which is equally original.
This Everyman’s Library Pocket Poets hardcover edition collects Hopkins's most beloved work—selected verse, prose, and letters—including:
• “The Sea and the Skylark”
• “Binsey Poplars”
• “Carrion Comfort”
• “Felix Randal”
• “Pied Beauty”
• “Spelt from Sybil’s Leaves”
• “The Wreck of the Deutschland”
• “The Windhover”
Everyman's Library pursues the highest production standards, printing on acid-free cream-colored paper, with full-cloth cases with two-color foil stamping, decorative endpapers, silk ribbon markers, European-style half-round spines, and a jewel-toned jacket.
