Readership: Scholars and students of nineteenth-century literature, culture, art history, and religion (particularly Catholicism).
Lesley Higgins, Professor of English, York University, Toronto
"Most useful to the contemporary 'international readership' is the editors' introduction [...] which sketches the poet's life rapidly and winningly, quoting some of the best lines in the best letters and outlining the difficulties - real and self-inflicted - of Hopkins's career." - Helen Vendler, London Review of Books,
"...the book is a good starting point for what promises, when completed, to be a huge contribution to Hopkins scholarship and a joy to both scholars and general readers. The exhaustive - yet for this reader downright exhilarating, never exhausting - work that Higgins has done..." - Barbara Gelpi, English Literature in Translation
"Students of Hopkins' writings will welcome this
intellectual juvenilia and will appreciate the high standard of editorial work that has gone into preparing it." - Contemporary Review
"Along with a detailed introduction, an extensive bibliography, and copious notes, the new volume puts a wealth of previously-unpublished material at the disposal of scholars and general readers of Hopkins" - Adrian Grafe, Notes and Queries
