A Look Inside
Unpaid Annotation
Hopkins's commitment to philosophical theology is important both in its development from nineteenth-century religious crises over hermeneutics, and in its aesthetic outworking. Explicating more than twenty-nine of Hopkins's intricate poems and his difficult prose, this study traces the development of Hopkins's epistemology and aesthetics through his intellectual encounters with Ruskin, Newman, and Duns Scotus.
