First published in 1969, Milward's "A Commentary On The Sonnets Of G.M. Hopkins" has-become a classic of Hopkins criticism. In the tradition of Shakespeare, Spenser, Sidney, Donne, and Milton, Jesuit poet Gerald Manley Hopkins wrote a series of acclaimed metaphysical and religious, personal and descriptive sonnets from 1877 until his death in 1889. Here Father Milward presents all 31 Hopkins sonnets followed by line-by-line commentary, often incorporating Hopkins' own criticisms and letters. 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.
