The Fire That Breaks

Critical Essays on G. M. Hopkins's Legacy in 20th Century Poetry

Edited by Daniel Westover and William Wright

Clemson University Press in association with Liverpool University Press

  • The Fire that Breaks brings together an international team of scholars to explore for the first time Hopkins's extended influence on the poets and novelist who defined Anglo-American literature throughout the past century
  • Investigates how Gerard Manley Hopkins is championed as a proto-modernist but is also difficult to pigeonhole in one genre
  • Explores common themes amongst Victorian writers that appear in his work: industrialism, religious faith and doubt, science and language
