May - the fifth month of the year in the Gregorian calendar and popular for May Day and Workers Rights celebrations. for our poets, including Milton, Hopkins, Von Goethe, Wordsworth, and Longfellow, much else is on their minds, and of course, it's beautifully put.
Gerard Manley Hopkins was born in Essex, England, in 1844. During his lifetime, his work, at his own insistence, remained unpublished. Hopkins died in 1889, aged just 45, but it was not until 1918 that his work was first published and until 1930 that he first received acclaim. Here, Margaret Rawlings reads a selection of his finest work, including "Starlight Night", "Spring", "Pied Piper", and "Inversnaid".
The turn of the 20th century saw radical developments in all art forms and particularly in poetry. The first volume of this series features the work of nine significant poets whose careers cover the period from the late 19th century to the early 20th century.
