Description

The last sonnets of Gerard Manley Hopkins, fraught as they are with despair, have long intrigued readers and critics alike. Robert Waldron's fascinating and challenging novella now explores the celebrated poet's inner agony, as well as his secret homosexuality, which he was compelled to hide from his fellow Jesuits. The Secret Dublin Diary of Gerard Manley Hopkins tells the moving story of a man who loved greatly - and was made to suffer for it.

Author Biography

Robert Waldron taught at America's first school, founded in 1635: Boston Latin School, where he lectured in English Literature. He is the author of ten books -- two works of fiction, and right non-fiction; of the latter four are books devoted to the work and life of Trappist monk and writer Thomas Merton. He has also written three books on Henri Nouwen. He is often in demand to conduct Merton or Nouwen retreats and as a lecturer on Thomas Merton. He has received awards for his writing on modern spirituality from the Catholic Press Association; he is also the recipient of four fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
