An internationally renowned Hopkins scholar and Emeritus Professor of English at Saint Joseph’s University, Joseph J. Feeney, S.J. is a lively and engaging speaker. Please join us as he presents “A Love Letter to Gerard Manley Hopkins, Jesuit Poet: On the Centennial of His First Book of Poems”
March 5, 2019
Post Learning Commons, 2nd Floor
Wachterhauser Seminar Room
Gerard Manley Hopkins, S.J. was a little-known English priest and poet during the latter part of the 19th Century. It was not until 1918, almost 30 years after Hopkins’ death, that his friend, Robert Bridges, Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom, compiled and edited the first collection of his poems. Since that time, Hopkins has been recognized as one of the major poets of the Victorian Era. Today, his poems, such as, “The Wreck of the Deutschland,” “The Windhover,” and “God’s Grandeur” are printed in numerous languages and enjoyed around the world.
To compliment Father Feeney’s personal insights into Hopkins’ poetry, two first edition copies of The Poems of Gerard Manley Hopkins will be on view before and after the presentation. Saint Joseph’s University is privileged to own four copies from the limited printing of 700. The volumes are housed permanently in the Gerard Manley Hopkins, S.J. Specials Collections located in the Post Learning Commons.
This program is co-sponsored by SJU Library, the Jesuit community, and the Department of English.
