Book Description

Taking the form of a sourcebook, this guide to Hopkins’ poetry presents:

  • extensive introductory comments on the contexts, critical history and interpretations of his work, from composition to the present
  • annotated extracts from key contextual documents, reviews and critical works
  • unabridged texts of twenty-nine of Hopkins’ most important poems, with detailed annotations
  • cross-references between documents and sections of the guide, in order to suggest links between texts, contexts and criticism
  • suggestions for futher reading.

Part of the Routledge Guides to Literature series, this volume is essential reading for all those beginning detailed study of Hopkins’s work and seeking not only a guide to the poems, but a way through the wealth of contextual and critical material that surrounds them.
