Overview

First published in 1969, Milward's "A Commentary On The Sonnets Of G.M. Hopkins" has-become a classic of Hopkins criticism.

This new edition, with its new biographical introduction by Joseph J. Feeney, S.J., preserves the freshness of Milward's original text while speaking to a new generation of Hopkins readers.
