A Jesuit priest, Hopkins created verse that combined his awareness of material sensuousness with the asceticism of religious devotion. His collected poems, published posthumously in 1918, exercised a profound influence on modern poetry. This volume features all of Hopkins' mature work, including his well-known elegy, "The Wreck of the Deutschland," as well as "God's Grandeur" and "Hurrahing in Harvest."
