Modern-ish Poets: Gerard Manley Hopkins

Seamus Perry and Mark Ford

In the first episode of series two of Modern-ish Poets, our ‘revolutionary . . . ★★★★★’ (The Times) podcast that considers the life and work of Anglophone poets from the (increasingly) long 20th century, through pieces written about them in the LRB archive, Seamus Perry and Mark Ford take on Gerard Manley Hopkins: Victorian literature’s only anti-modern proto-modernist queer-ecologist Jesuit priest.
