Gerard Manley Hopkins

Data de nascimento: 28. Julho 1844
Data de falecimento: 8. Junho 1889
Outros nomes: 杰拉尔德·曼利·霍普金斯, Джерард Менли Хопкинс, جيرارد مانلي هوبكنز

Gerard Manley Hopkins , um padre jesuíta, foi um dos maiores poetas da literatura inglesa.

A sua primeira grande obra foi o poema "O naufrágio do Deutschland" , ao qual seguiram-se poemas líricos como "O francelho", "A calhandra enjaulada"", "O Oxford de Duns Scotus", e "Henry Purcell". Em 1877 escreveu seus trágicos "Sonetos Obscuros", o primeiro dos quais é "Carrion Comfort" . Sua obra completa foi publicada em 1930.

Os impulsos homoeróticos de Hopkins, dirigidos sobretudo a Digby Mackworth Dolben, um colega de Eton, parecem ter tido uma influência decisiva sobre o tom, qualidade e mesmo com o conteúdo da sua poesia. O autor de uma biografia de Hopkins, Robert Bernard Martin afirma que o encontro com Dolben, por ocasião do 17.º aniversãrio de Hopkins, foi provavelmente o momento mais marcante emocionalmente da vida de Hopkins, sobre o qual escreveu abundantemente nos seus diários e a quem dedicou inúmeros poemas, incluindo muitos de caracter elegíaco, considerados dos melhores de Hopkins, após a morte por afogamento de Dolben em 1867.

Wessex Poems and Other Verses (1918)
Contexto: I have desired to go
Where springs not fail,
To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail
And a few lilies blow.
And I have asked to be
Where no storms come,
Where the green swell is in the havens dumb,
And out of the swing of the sea.

When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush“

" Spring http://www.bartleby.com/122/9.html", stanza 1
Wessex Poems and Other Verses (1918)
Contexto: Nothing is so beautiful as Spring—
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes like lightning to hear him sing.

Letter to Robert Bridges (18 October 1882)

Contexto: I always knew in my heart Walt Whitman’s mind to be more like my own than any other man’s living. As he is a very great scoundrel this is not a pleasant confession.

For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim.

„You do not mean by mystery what a Catholic does. You mean an interesting uncertainty: the uncertainty ceasing, interest ceases also…“

—  Gerard Manley Hopkins

Letter to Robert Bridges (24 October 1883)
Letters, etc
Contexto: You do not mean by mystery what a Catholic does. You mean an interesting uncertainty: the uncertainty ceasing, interest ceases also... But a Catholic by mystery means an incomprehensible certainty: without certainty, without formulation there is no interest;... the clearer the formulation the greater the interest.

„Over again I feel thy finger and find thee.“

—  Gerard Manley Hopkins

" The Wreck of the Deutschland http://www.bartleby.com/122/4.html", lines 1-8
Wessex Poems and Other Verses (1918)
Contexto: Thou mastering me
God! giver of breath and bread;
World’s strand, sway of the sea;
Lord of living and dead;
Thou hast bound bones and veins in me, fastened me flesh,
And after it almost unmade, what with dread,
Thy doing: and dost thou touch me afresh?
Over again I feel thy finger and find thee.

Wound with thee, in thee isled,
Fold home, fast fold thy child.“
