A concise study of the life and poetry of the Victorian priest-poet. Gerald Roberts gives a chronological description and analysis of Hopkins's career and writing, and pays due attention to the Victorian and Jesuit background. The resulting picture is of a man divided between the religious and the aesthetic life, a story of apparent failure and real achievement.
