    Gerard Manley Hopkins

    Gerard Manley Hopkins
    • Famed poet of nature and religion
    • Jesuit priest
    • Linguistic innovator
    One of the greatest poets of the modern era, Gerard Manley Hopkins was born in Stratford, England in 1844. At age twenty-two he left a promising career at Oxford to become a Roman Catholic, and, two years later, a Jesuit. When he died of typhoid fever in 1889 at age forty-four, none of his poems had been published.
