Joseph J. Feeney suggests of Hopkins's sermons that 'His contests are, as it were
, with the over-familiarity of Gospel stories, with the dull sermons his
congregations have suffered through.'6 The danger here was that
uncommonness in the pulpit would be taken as evidence of singularity, a trait
considered by a Jesuit contemporary to be 'diametrically opposed to the spirit of
the Society [of Jesus, i.e. the Jesuits]', and one that Hopkins himself would
eventually tire of being reproached ...

When Hopkins speaks of “realising . . . his ignorance” that he may “reach the
reality of the facts,” he is echoing Newman, who said in the Grammar that the
purpose of meditation on the Gospels “is to realize them; to make the facts which
they relate stand out before our minds as objects.” Finally, when Hopkins speaks
of memory as the faculty of simple apprehension toward present things and
toward the concrete, he is using but modifying the language of the Grammar.

The importance of the individual is affirmed in the space given to the speaker's
conversion; its wider impact is seen in the context of the wreck, the nun's
experience, and the clearly drawn relationship between the deeds of the one and
the fate of the many with which the poem ends. Even in an autobiographical
account, Hopkins subordinates his own trials to larger issues, of which his
personal experience can act as illustration. In this he is much closer to Dolben
than to Newman or ...

... is James Finn Cotter's Inscape: The Christology and Poetry of Gerard Manley
Hopkins (1972). A close examination of Hopkins's theological development in
relation to the Christ of the gospel, in the Church Fathers, and in Scotus, leads
into a detailed reading of the poetry. Cotter, as other studies do, seizes on
Hopkins's undergraduate interest in the early Greek philosopher, Parmenides (
Barnes 1987:40, 129–42), and sees his influence in Hopkins's evolution of the
idea of 'inscape', ...

This is a highly autobiographical poem, and Hopkins once attempted to justify it
to Bridges, who did not like it, with that feeblest of critical statements, that it had
actually happened to him: 'I may add for your greater interest and edification that
what refers to myself in the poem is all strictly and ... But Hopkins was far too
subtle to be suggesting that every physical action in the poem was his own, for he
was referring to mental and spiritual attitudes. ... the voel, a vein Of the gospel

48 In his last poems, Hopkins introduces another important element which is
human suffering. After his experience with his parishioners, he began to think of
the welfare of the working class. Following the gospels of the New Testament, he
wrote poetry on working men like Tom, Harry and Felix. Naturally, his poetry in
his last phase of life is tragic. His view of nature too changes. Nature, no doubt, is
a part of God's design but he finds a contrast between the freshness of nature

Diary of Gerard Manley Hopkins. I've always been fascinated with diaries. My first
work of fiction, The Lost Diary of Francis Thompson, was based on the theory that
Francis Thompson,who composed “TheHound of Heaven,” had kept a diarythat
somehow waslost (he actuallyhad kept a diary, but it wasnever found). Thediary
is the genreI feel most comfortable with. Usually writers of diariesaremaskless;
