“As Kingfishers Catch Fire” By Gerard Manley Hopkins Review

As Kingfishers Catch Fire is a selection of Gerard Manley Hopkins’ incomparably brilliant poetry, ranging from the ecstasy of ‘The Windhover’ and ‘Pied Beauty’ to the heart-wrenching despair of the ‘sonnets of desolation’. 

Another poem which didn’t go well with me. After reading a decent amount of poems I think that poems aren’t for me.

The plot here was not great because I just couldn’t connect with it and it felt like the generic plot for all poems. 

The writing style here was not great either because it was hard to read due to the old English and it really didn’t give me the vibe which would make interested in it.

I give this poem 1 / 5
