Gerard Manley Hopkins is regarded as one of the greatest poets of the Victorian era, and his poems continue to grow in popularity. This volume contains a selection of his most popular poems, with a short commenary by Jo O'Donovan. These commentaries place the poems in their time and place,helping readers to understand how and why they came to written, as well as offering insights into the imagery and language used in each poem. Francis Browne is considered one of the greatest photographers of the twentieth century, well-known for his Titanic photos, and the discovery after his death of 42,000 images. This volume brings together the work of these two Jesuit artists in a beautiful and balanced book which will make a really special gift for anyone interested in poetry, photography or both. The book has a lovely nostalgic quality which will appeal to many. This unique volume also contains previously unseen Hopkins memorabilia from the Irish Jesuit Archives.
