Selected Poetry by Gerard Manley Hopkins
Book DescriptionGerard Manley Hopkins (1844-89) is now recognized as a major poet of striking originality. He is widely admired for his particularly vivid expression of feeling, from the religious ecstasy of 'he Blessed Virgin' to the torments of his loneliness and despair in 'No Worst', and for conveying with wonderful freshness his sense of natural beauty in such poems as 'The Windhover' and 'Pied Beauty'. This selection, chosen from the award-winning Oxford Authors critical edition, includes all his major English poems and most of the larger fragments. The poems are supported with extensive notes and a useful introduction to Hopkins's life and poetry. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
