本の要約

"Living with Hopkins". In a lifetime spent entirely within the reign of Queen Victoria, the Jesuit poet Gerard Manley Hopkins was practically unknown outside a small circle of friends, and most of his poems remained unpublished by the time of his death in 1889. He had to wait till 1918 before his collected poems were edited by his friend Robert Bridges (then poet laureate) and published by the Oxford University Press. Even so, it was not till after World War II and the third edition of his poems by W.H.Gardner in 1948, that his fame spread beyond the British Isles to America and all over the world. Now he is recognized as an outstanding English religious poet. In the present volume I have collected a number of my articles on various aspects of that poetry contributed to the annual bulletin of the Hopkins Society of Japan entitled "Hopkins Research" over the past 15 years, with emphasis on his uniqueness, his eccentricity, and his inspiration.

著者のプロフィール

Peter Milward was born in London on October 12, 1925, and educated at Wimbledon College (a Jesuit high school). He entered the Society of Jesus in 1943, and after various studies he went on to specialize in the Classics and English at Oxford University. He came to Japan in 1954 and after further studies was ordained priest in 1960. From 1962 onwards he has taught English literature at Sophia University in Tokyo. In addition to founding the Renaissance Institute, the Hopkins Society of Japan and the Chesterton Society of Japan, he has published some 400 books, mostly as textbooks for Japanese students, many of them translated into Japanese, but now most of them out of print. Several of his books, especially those on the drama of Shakespeare and the poetry of Hopkins, have been published in England and America. Even in retirement he is still teaching and writing, as he enters his 88th year (or beiju).
