The others are dull thundercolour or black-grape-colour except in the white pieings, the quills and tail, and in the shot of the neck. It reflects the exasperation of a faithful servant who feels he has been neglected, and is addressed to a divine person "Sir" capable of hearing the complaint, but seemingly unwilling to listen. There are a number of sides in politics. The other marks are easily understood, namely accents, where the reader might be in doubt which syllable should have the stress; slurs, that is loops over syllables, to tie them together into the time of one; little loops at the end of a line to shew that the rhyme goes on to the first letter of the next line; what in music are called pausesto shew that the syllable should be dwelt on; and twirlsto mark reversed or counterpointed rhythm. He is thought to have suffered throughout his life from what today might be diagnosed as either bipolar disorder or chronic unipolar depressionand battled a deep sense of melancholic anguish.

The work was inspired by the Deutschland incident, a maritime disaster in which people died, including five Franciscan nuns who had been leaving Germany due to harsh anti-Catholic laws see Kulturkampf. This new Hopkins lived a playful life from childhood till death as a student who loved puns and jokes and wrote parodies, comic verse, and satires; as a Jesuit who played and organized games and had "a gift for mimicry;" and most significantly, as a poet and prose stylist who rewards readers with unexpected displays of whimsy and incongruity, even, strikingly, in "The Wreck of the Deutschland," "The Windhover," and the "Terrible Sonnets. Many poets have written about evening turning slowly into night, but none had done it quite the way Hopkins does here. And so that not any misunderstandings will occur: I do think Kaylors article got a place in a literary magazine.

Here is one small observation that I offer very tentatively. No one who absorbs this book's radical readings will ever see and hear Hopkins's poetry and prose quite the way they used to. He persisted until his tongue was black and he collapsed at drill. But I don't see there's anything wrong in assuming that Hopkins had a homosexual orientation.

Of this kind of verse Milton is the great master and the choruses of Samson Agonistes are written throughout in it—but with the disadvantage that he does not let the reader clearly know what the ground-rhythm is meant Poems and prose of Gerard Manley Hopkins book be and so they have struck most readers as merely irregular.
