Gerard Manley Hopkins: A Very Private Life

By Robert Bernard Martin (NHC Fellow, 1988–89)

New York: Putnam, 1991

From the publisher’s description:

Probably no English poet of the 19th century is today so widely read or greatly loved as Gerard Manley Hopkins. Yet in his lifetime he was almost entirely unpublished, and only a handful of his close friends knew that he wrote poetry at all.
