Gerald Manly Hopkins (1844-1889), one of the eminent poets of the Victorian period, is also known being a Jesuit Priest. Although his fame was posthumous, his writings are relevant to this day.

It is said that, due to his Radical writing style, his best poems were denied publication during his time, however, later after World War I, after 30 years of his demise his poems were brought to the world’s eyes by his good friend, Robert Bridges who published Hopkins’ works by the volume Poems. Some of his well-known works include "Binsey Poplars", "Pied Beauty", "The Windhover: To Christ our Lord", The Wreck of the Deutschland, etc… He was influenced by Christina Rossetti and he studied with Walter Pater at Oxford.
