    One thought on “Gerard Manley Hopkins: A Life”

    1. Mariani, Paul GERARD MANLEY HOPKINS A Life 2008 This is a well researched, almost scholarly biography of Hopkins that, in the end, leaves you rather cold Mariani pursues his subject as an example of a spiritually gifted man who expressed his spirituality through his poetry The conundrum was that Hopkins felt that his writing of poetry was time spent away from his true calling as a priest, and subsequently burnt most of his early work It is only when he finally published his famous poem on the wr [...]

    2. When I was in high school, we studied poetry every spring in our English class At some point I became fascinated with the poems of Gerard Manley Hopkins, a passionate Catholic, who created some of his own language for poetry Recently, then, I heard about this new biography of Hopkins decided to read it It s an unusual book The author idolizes Hopkins also think that everything he did is fascinating The author had access to letters diaries, so we get sometimes almost a day by day account of Hopki [...]

    3. I won t be the same again after reading this This book managed to collapse the span of time separating the present from the space within which Hopkins walked I can t say, unlike many other books I ve read, that I feel like I could imagine sitting across from this poet to have a chat I felt, rather, that I could only watch him as he moved increasingly beyond my comprehension, but not respect How fortunate I was to stumble across this man, and how odd that the most incredible parts of him exist in [...]

    4. As a personal, religious, and literary portrait of a resolutely obscure poet, this is an unusual book and a rather qualified success I am a great admirer of Hopkins verse and I am interested in his religious itinerary, but yet I found much of the book s first half to be somewhat distant It was tempting at times to imagine that one might see deeply into Hopkins life by reading his poems over again along with some of his letters and sermons excerpts of all three, with interpretation, accounting f [...]

    5. This poet biography wasn t quite the artsy cool one that the Shelley biography was it was conventional, but Mariani s style is different from what I imagine traditional biographies are like It s sequence of the salient events that make up the life of G.M Hopkins Most interesting I found was that Hopkins was virtually unpublished in his lifetime that he even resisted it Mariani starts elsewhere than Hopkins birth, choosing to indentify the time around his 21st birthday that he decided to leave A [...]

    6. What amazes me most about this book is the way Paul Mariani adapts the cadences and vocabulary of Hopkins s own writing to tell the poet s story He weaves in details from Hopkins s poems and letters, as well as quotes but he goes beyond this to approach Hopkins s own style without coming off forced It makes for intricate reading at times, but I find it a beautiful tribute to Hopkins I also think Mariani is a great person to tell this poet s story, because he has such respect for his devotion and [...]

    7. The book was very well researched and provided much information of Hopkins However it seemed to almost prefer to focus on the issues of poetry, especially in Hopkins world, than on the poet himself The very poignant and profound humanity and faith of this man, expressed in his poetry was seemingly veiled Perhaps there is a reticence in acknowledging the reality and issues with which Hopkins struggled yet to honestly explore them is to only give opportunity to truly understand and appreciate this [...]

    8. See my analysis of this biography in the the 2009 Magill s Literary Annual Mariani s telling of the poet priest s life balances Hopkin s commitment to faith and the responsibilities of his office with his love of language and skill as a poet This approach has never been as fully implemented as it is in this volume because few literary critics have recognized the demands of priesthood as well as Mariani who is an active Catholic devotee and poet himself.

    9. When I was at BYU, I decided that I would do my Masters Thesis on Gerard Manley Hopkins I never did, but I still am intrigued by the man and his poetry I picked this up during a day trip to the Salt Lake City main library and read bits and pieces Of course, no card to check it out, but I ll look for it later in a local library.

    10. Wow this is one of the best written, best researched books I ve ever read Mr Mariani clearly had a passion for documenting Hopkins life in complete detail It took me 6 months to read this book, but it was well worth it.

    11. I ve always enjoyed Hopkins writing style and the impromptu words This looks like an engaging book about the stories behind him and the poetry.

    12. This is a very full chronological biography, whereby Mariani lets the structure of Hopkins life unfold the poetry.
