The "selected prose" they chose it turns out is mostly letters to family and Hopkins' family. Even if his devotional themes are to some degree lost on an incurable atheist like me although I would still argue that his sheer emotion and passion shines through regardlessand much of the work contained here I don't think I'll ever find myself coming back to, that is MORE than offset by the unending joy I find in the matured Hopkins' virtuosic and vibrant rhapsodies.

After all, the man did write a long poem appreciating the divine powers behind a shipwreck. Over again I feel thy finger and find thee … Hopkins gave up writing poetry in the late 1860s when he joined the Society of Jesus, because he thought poetry was self-indulgent.

It includes all his poetry, from best-known works such as "The Wreck of the Deutschland" and "The Windhover" to translations, foreign language poems, plays, and verse fragments, and the recently discovered poem "Consule Jones.

No such defence should have been necessary - Hopkins was doing something new and unmatched to this day. I did, after slogging through 20 pages of it and feeling guilty for it. It's hard to be contaminated by light, or even by fire. The concept of inscape shares much with Wordsworth's "spots of time," Emerson's "moments," and showing it to be a characteristically Romantic and post-Romantic idea.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. His friend Bridges who went on to be poet laureate was the one who, in 1918, published all of Hopkins's work, decades after he had died of typhoid fever, but he almost didn't because he didn't think they were very special.

"The Windhover" This is a poet who revels in the sound of poetry as much as in its rhythm. The transcendent way he saw the world, and his boldness in fabricating some words and leaving others out, make many of the other poems very daunting. It was particularly fascinating to see the humor in Shakespearian-influenced play fragments and dialogues, as well as a significant worry about greatness or lack thereof, and an interesting focus on female saints: "Who thinks of Thecla?
