Gerard Manley Hopkins S.J. fue un sacerdote jesuita y poeta británico.

Su obra literaria, de marcado carácter innovador y en la que se aprecian inspiraciones del prerrafaelismo y del Movimiento de Oxford de la época victoriana, introdujo nuevos recursos estilísticos e innovadoras estructuras métricas como el sprung rhythm, el Caudate sonnet o el Curtal sonnet . A pesar de que, durante su vida, ésta fue escasamente publicada y accesible solamente a un público minoritario, influyó posteriormente en un número creciente de autores de literatura inglesa del siglo XX como Ivor Gurney, Wystan Hugh Auden, Arthur Waley y el Premio Nobel de Literatura, Thomas Stearns Eliot. Influyó asimismo también en extranjeros, como por ejemplo el francés Pierre Emmanuel.

Su talento y sensibilidad artística le permitieron también abordar la pintura y la música, siendo compositor de varias canciones sobre la base de poemas propios que también han sido empleados en obras de autores como Benjamin Britten, Michael Tippett o Samuel Barber.

En su recuerdo, la comunidad The Irish Hopkins Society celebra anualmente cada mes de julio desde su constitución en 1987, el festival de arte The Gerard Manley Hopkins International Summer School, en la localidad irlandesa de Monasterivin.

Frases Gerard Manley Hopkins

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

— Gerard Manley Hopkins
Context: 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. Letter to Robert Bridges (24 October 1883)

„Shape nothing, lips; be lovely-dumb“

— Gerard Manley Hopkins
Context: Shape nothing, lips; be lovely-dumb: It is the shut, the curfew sent From there where all surrenders come Which only makes you eloquent. "The Habit of Perfection", lines 5 - 8

„Nothing is so beautiful as Spring—
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush“

— Gerard Manley Hopkins
Context: 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.

„I say more, the just man justices;
Keeps grace: that keeps all his goings graces;
Acts in God's eye what in God's eye he is —
Christ — for Christ plays in ten thousand places,
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his
To the Father through the features of men's faces.“

— Gerard Manley Hopkins
Context: I say more, the just man justices; Keeps grace: that keeps all his goings graces; Acts in God's eye what in God's eye he is — Christ — for Christ plays in ten thousand places, Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his To the Father through the features of men's faces. "As Kingfishers Catch Fire, Dragonflies Draw Flame" (undated poem, c. March - April 1877)

„I have desired to go
Where springs not fail“

— Gerard Manley Hopkins

O look at all the fire-folk sitting in the air!“

„I always knew in my heart Walt Whitman’s mind to be more like my own than any other man’s living.“

„Glory be to God for dappled things—“

Over again I feel thy finger and find thee. "[http://www.bartleby.com/122/4.html The Wreck of the Deutschland]", lines 1-8
