By Gerard Manley Hopkins

Calling Card

Sounds: Sprung

The best way to spot a Gerard Manley Hopkins poem is to lend it an ear. When you do, you'll hear a densely-packed soundscape, filled with rhythmic variations and sonic effects. Just take a listen to "Pied Beauty," "The Windhover," and "Spring and Fall" for more examples of Hopkins' sounds in action.
