The Secret Dublin Diary of Gerard Manley Hopkins (Paperback)

The Secret Dublin Diary of Gerard Manley Hopkins Cover Image
Special Order


A bold exploration in fiction of the years Gerard Manley Hopkins, one of England's foremost Victorian poets, spent in Ireland - of his torments, his ecstasies, his fears, and his loves. The last sonnets of Gerard Manley Hopkins, fraught as they are with despair, have long intrigued readers and critics alike. In this fascinating and challenging novella, we discover that the poet's inner agony is the result of his homosexual inclinations, which he was compelled to hide from his fellow Jesuits. This is the story of a man who loves greatly, but because of the life he has chosen, he must always dissemble.
