Gerard 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 conveyingwith 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.
